I enjoyed reading this book about the post-Civil War era and the army life of the characters. Easy and interesting reading.
Very good. Want to read another by this author!!!
Leaving the security of their Eastern cities and the comfort of their homes and families, pioneers move west--where only small forts protect them against the vast wilderness. Men join the military to defend the frontier, while their women support them--striving to keep families together no matter what the hardship.
Only after she agrees to marry another man does Sarah Montgomery realize her fiance was not killed in the Civil War.
Abandoned and pregnant, Emmie Croftner leaves her gossip filled hometown, seeking refuge with old friends. Can a gentle Lieutenant convince her that all men are not the same?
For Jessica DuBois, privledged daughter of a Army officer, she answers only to money and male attention. But when her world changes, can she prove herself a woman of substance--worthy of a righteouw man's notice?
Thanks to her sister's meddling, Bessie Randall discoveres that she is now married by proxy to Jasper Mendenhall. Shocked, Bessie travels to Fort Bridger to learn and experiences the surprising things God has in store for both of them.
All these stories and characters are continued from the first story, so you get to follow their lives. It's like watching a movie 'in your head' as you read. :) Love these books..they are so very interesting!
The westward expansion of the US required courage not only of pioneering men, but also of their women.
