This book was GREAT! I have never read a book by Maggie Osborne that was not a good one. If you like books set in the old west that have a bit of romance, a lot of adventure, and the so well written you do not want to put it down, then read Maggie Osborne. All of that is especially true with this book!

This was not at all what I expected in a historical romance - it was better than most I have read. Rather than being a straight forward romance it focuses on the desire within each of the mail-order brides to fulfill a dream, a chance for a new beginning and for a better life than what they have left behind. Pettiness, jealousy and anger give way to feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction as they realize that they can withstand the rigors of the trail and each woman struggles to become a better more complete person. Thrown into the mix is a mystery journal writer. Who is she and what is her goal and her desire? This book kept me on pins and needles as I tried to determine how each woman would react to the next hurdle placed in their way. This book has great potential as a bookshelf keeper.

Hold on to your spurs, this is quite a ride! If you want action, romance, interesting subplots, action, fascinating characters and action boy have I got a great book for you!

This is my third time reading this book; it is that good. Its the story of a wagon train of almost a dozen mail-order brides going from Chastity, Missouri, to Clampet Falls, Oregon. It is a journey of 6 months duration across ½ of the United States. When the travelers embark on their long and dangerous journey it is April 1952.

There is trouble even before the wagon train leaves. Augusta Boyd, daughter of the esteemed former banker and mayor of Chastity, demands that Mrs. Perrin Waverly be removed from the wagon train. Cody Snow, wagonmaster, refuses -- but Augusta isnt finished.

She tells of the shameful actions of Mrs. Waverly (to the other women), and most want to isolate her. However, Mrs. Waverly draws the card to be the womens representative to the wagonmaster. This sends a chill through the women.

The things that happen on the trip are realistic and gripping. One would think that traveling with a group of women would be dull let me assure you, it is not. Theres even a mystery-suspense angle; someone plans to marry Cody and notices that he is taken with Perrin Waverly. Strange things start to happen.

Theres so much going on in this book; each of the women is unique and has a story (as to why they would travel so far to marry a man, sight unseen). Enjoy!

The twelve women from Chastity, Missouri, meant trouble for Wagon Master Cody Snow. Snow was used to transporting guns and whiskey, not mail-order brides. Then Cody looked into the defiant eyes of Perrin Waverly, a woman who had a past as painful as his own. Snow discovered an even bigger problem - his own desire. When he yells "Wagons Ho!," they all begin a perilous odyssey. The spinsters and widows, a seventeen-year-old innocent, a Missouri belle, and the wagon train's handsome half-breed scout all have reasons for moving west, all of them carrying secrets. Now they will discover the dangers of the trail match the dangers in their souls.
