A trilogy, set in 1815, that follows the journey of the Nye family from their comfortable life in Connecticut to the wilderness of New York. Pioneer life is certainly not romanticized in this series, as the Nye family must contend with many difficulties. The main character, Remembrance, is very likeable, and you grow to admire her as she takes on more and more responsibility for her family’s survival.

I very much enjoyed these books. I’ve read a lot of “pioneer fiction,” but still learned a lot from this series. The second book, Frozen Summer covered the true events in the summer of 1816, when snows and killing frosts were felt all summer long in most of Northern New England and New York. These were later discovered to be a result of the eruption of Tambora, but at the time, the settlers truly feared that the world was ending.
