About Micaela Gilchrist


The Good Journey
Copyright © 2001
by Micaela Gilchrist
Simon & Schuster

In the tradition of such memorable bestselling authors as Willa Cather and Edna Ferber, or such more recent successes as Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain and Philip Kimball's Liar's Moon, Micaela Gilchrist has written a first-rate, romantic and deeply moving historical novel, rich with the kind of detail that brings history to life and peopled with the kind of larger-than-life characters that stand out against even the brilliant, tumultuous, bloody backdrop of the struggle for the West. — from the jacket

Gilchrist has managed to create a work that is both historically riveting in the manner of 18th-century captivity narratives and as deft in the depiction of a beleaguered marriage as CS Godshalk's Kalimantaan. — Publisher's Weekly

Sprawling frontier saga of love, loss, and revenge spanning several decades. — Kirkus Reviews
