Beneath the Bending Sky - Book Review

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

   Beneath the Bending Sky by Jane Kirkpatrick, is a historical fiction based in the 1800's, about Mollie Sheehan and her flow of life. As a child, she experienced many ups and downs, including having her father absent for long periods of time, due to work trips he needed to take. During these trials, Mollie began to help provide for her family, filling in the gaps while her father was gone. Taking jobs here and there, Mollie ends up falling in love with a man named Peter, who, after asking for the father's blessings in marriage of the two, Mollie finds that her father disapproves of them together. Heartbreak, sadness, and many moves, as Mollie gets older, she realizes the control her father had on her life. Things start panning in a different direction and love is once found again. This begins a life long journey of change and acceptance.

   I don't typically enjoy reading stories set in the 1800's but after pushing myself through the first few chapters, I began to enjoy what I was reading. Getting to know the characters and seeing Mollie's next step in life, had me wanting to read more to see what she would be up to next. Her respect and loyalty to her father was appreciated, as well as her determination to achieve what she wanted in life. Reading about how people survived in the past, was pretty interesting and reminded me to be grateful for how far we have come in this world. I enjoyed reading about Mollie's character because she was full of respect and compassion for others.
