Tomorrow is a River
Tomorrow is a River is the story of Caroline, who, with her preacher husband Adam, settled a homestead near the Tomorrow River in Northeastern WI in the late 1800s. After being abandoned by her husband, Caroline and her 2 young children struggle to survive the rugged wilderness of pioneer Wisconsin with the help of a Menominee Indian woman who befriends them. Together they weather many storms, the most terrifying of all, the Peshtigo Fire of 1871. This book is full of fascinating facts from Wisconsin’s history and a good choice for any history buff, yet it is also a wonderful story of friendship, family, love and perseverance. I read this story about 15 years ago and it made such an enormous impression on me, that I still recommend it to people who are looking for a good book to read.
