Jake can’t believe he’s been sent back in time to act as scout for a wagon train headed for Oregon, and given the added burden of keeping one emigrant woman safe during the journey. He and Rachel are confused by their attraction to each other. Jake’s ill-mannered, unconventional ways are overshadowed only by his notorious reputation. Rachel’s traditional values and quiet, responsible character are the complete opposite of what attracts Jake to a woman. When their forbidden attraction turns to love, what will happen at the end of the trail?
L Henderson is the definition of excellent storytelling. Henderson spins this
yarn with subtle dialogue and description accurate of the era. So subtle, in
fact, the reader won’t know they’ve been transported, like Jake, back in time
until they’re entrenched in the hardships of the emigrants who left ruts in the
ground in 1848.” –InD’Tale Magazine Crowned Heart Review July 2013
