A great, gutsy, down and dirty story of the early days when the West was settled. Wonderful ,resilient characters that evolve. Solid plot with lots of historically accurate info and detail about life, wagon trains, the role women played in the building of the west. Almost didn't repost this one.
I love stories about wagon trains as the pioneers travel to the west to make new homes. There are lots of hardships along the way, with many dangers and sometimes even death, but romance can be found in the most unexpected places. This book had it all. Great story.
I really liked this story. It is a little different because we meet the heroine Lydia giving birth and praying for death. The Hero Ross is kind of a jerk in the beginning because he didn't want to be attracted to Lydia because she was a "tramp". Overall it was a great read.
