Book Description:

A dream of a better life…
A tragedy aboard a wagon train…
A tentative agreement…
Will it lead to love for two seeking hearts?
Hoping to escape the poor conditions of 1880 New York, Tarsie Raines and her friends Joss and Mary Brubacher and their two children set off for Kansas aboard an unusual wagon train. But when tragedy strikes on the trip across the prairie, Tarsie is thrown into a partnership with Joss that leaves them both questioning God and their plans for the future.

As their funds dwindle and nothing goes as planned, will they give up and go their separate ways? Or will God use their time in Drayton Valley in a way they never expected?

 “Sawyer treats readers to love stories that speak to the heart.”–Romantic Times

My Thoughts:

It was captivating, that’s for sure. Though not on my favorites list, I still think that it was a good book.

It shows, in a fictional setting, that anybody no matter how bad they’ve been, can be saved by Jesus blood. That no one is too wicked to be saved and held in God’s loving amrs.

Kim is a wonderful author and knows how to write to draw a person in. I’m glad I read it and hope that if you decide to read this book, that you’ll be touched and inspired.
