5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet tale of the discovery of ancestral heritage
Reviewed in the United States on January 4, 2022
Minnesota was a very wild area at the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Jesse James and Cole Younger terrorized the area with train and bank robberies. Talk is a story of a young woman whose ancestors came from this area and is descended from the Ojibwe people. Greg Peterson has woven an endearing tale of honesty and family heritage wrapped around a treasure hunt.
A classic love story starts with a car skidding off the roadway on a sharp turn. People watch out for each other and their properties in small rural America. The chance meeting of the two is well engineered.
The hints to find the treasure are hidden in an overgrown hundred acres not cultivated in nearly eighty years. Also, the discovery of the heroine, Addie’s, roots are engaging and endearing. Not all of the Younger offspring follow the path of their parental examples. Generations later there is much to be discovered.
An old family bible gives some of the information on the roots and family history. People often wonder about their ancestors and it was easy to identify with the young lady and her journey.
I recommend this book to anyone who can identify with family mysteries and the heritage and history they would like to find. 5 stars - CE Williams
