Thieving Forest - Martha Conway - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Thieving Forest:

Surviving the wilds of 19th century Ohio, all while wearing a skirt.

My favorite Martha Conway quote from the book:

"Trouble comes to those who bring it on themselves..."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

When would you pack up and go back to Philly?

Can you restore what is lost?

My review of Thieving Forest:

Historical fiction is always a fav.

Everyone has their own destiny.

I don't know that I would have followed.
