I have this entire series. It took me a long time to get into this book to be at the point that I even care to read it. The only reason I am going on to the rest of the series is that I am the type that likes to find out what happens to people and this series leaves that open at the end of book 1

The Price is husband-and-wife team Kraus' first entry in what looks to be a likable four-volume series, Circle of Destiny, chronicling the fortunes of four Harvard classmates in the mid-nineteenth century. It follows the unpredictable life of Joshua Quittner, son of a pioneer preacher, whose scholarly ways earn him his primitive Ohio community's support to study at Harvard's famous seminary. The catch is that he must return to Ohio to take up his father's ministry, which is hard to do after he's heard Ralph Waldo Emerson talk of a universal religion and met liberated, would-be physician Hannah Collins. News of the gold strike in California fires his wanderlust, and he strikes off to find his fortune, leaving lots of disappointed folks back in Ohio
