    ITEM#: 14111686

    In order to encourage Mormon converts to immigrate to Salt Lake City, a plan was implemented by Brigham Young himself. Outfitted with two-wheeled handcarts, the immigrants were then expected to walk, pushing the handcarts, for the 1,300-mile journey from Iowa City. Several "companies," as they were called, completed this perilous trek and successfully reached Salt Lake City. But for the Martin Company, one of the last groups to leave from Iowa City that year, the trip proved disastrous. More than a quarter of the 575 members froze or starved to death.

    True Sisters tells the story of four women, brought together on the harrowing journey of the Martin Handcart Company and united by the promises of prosperity and salvation in a new land. Through the ties of female friendship and the strength born from suffering, each one tests the boundaries of her faith and learns the real meaning of survival along the way.

    Though the characters in True Sisters are fictional, they are based on journals, stories, and accounts of real women who braved the horror and hardship of the handcart trek, finding faith, friendship, and even joy in the journey.
