One of the biggest challenges with writing historical fiction is including enough detail for the story to feel authentic without getting bogged down. In addition portraying real people in acceptable way can be challenging, especially well known individuals like Brigham Young. Dean Hughes has, in my experience, always done an excellent job with this.
And that is no different here. Fresh Courage Take portrays the struggles of two couples, Will and Liz, and their descendents, Jeff and Abby, who are each struggling with some big challenges as well as the routine ones. Will and Liz live in Nauvoo during the time just before the Saints were forced to leave. When Will joins the Mormon Battalion the chance that he and Liz may never see each other again is very real. For Jeff and Abby the challenges of job and home can be overwhelming.
I think one of the things I like best about this series is how real it all feels. Will and Liz as well as Jeff and Abby are characters that I found it very easy to care about and root for. I sincerely empathized with their struggles. To me that's the sign of a good writer, when the story becomes so real that the writing becomes secondary.
