The Daughter's Walk was an interesting read. I found the story of two women making a trek from Washington to New York intriging. The book starts out about these two women and their travel and how theri relationship changes through the decisions they both make. The story turns to the daughter and focuses on her life and exile from her family based on choices she made. I Understood the choices she made and found myself sympathetic to her plight. She grew into a person that i think her family secretly admired though none would ever admit it. I would have like to see a little more romance in the book but alas it was not to be. I would like to know more about the family history of the Estby clan. I find that i was left wondering if Clara ever found love and would like to read more of the walk her mother and she too in 1896. I will be looking for more from Jane Kirkpatrick. I really enjoyed the story but as i said before still left a little hungry.
