Hattie's Heroes has a more serious theme to many of Ms Simpson’s western romances, in that her heroine Hattie is an orphan during the first half of the nineteenth century, not a good time to be friendless and without parents in Missouri.

Hattie is employed to care for three children who are about to embark on a wagon train with their parents. She meets and is attracted to Billy, hired to forage for food and care for the livestock on the trail.

Hattie, however has another admirer, making Billy jeal

The first part of this story read like a good historical romance. Slowly sweeping toward its climax, but then it jarred out of the past to the present. It was a good story in the present but the characters accepted Hattie too easily and the transition wasn't fleshed out enough. Good tale needing a few more pages to be a great one.

Ginger Simpson has penned a heart-warming, tender story filled with romance, adventure, history, conflict, and danger. The reader immediately cares about Hattie, the viewpoint character, and her eventual fate. The minor characters, especially the two heroes, also spring to life, practically jumping off the pages of the e-reader. This is a novel I couldn't put down. Bravo, Ginger Simpson!

Ginger Simpson grew up reading anything by Laura Ingalls Wilder and became so fascinated with western historical novels, they've remained her favorite for more years than she cares to admit.

In 2002, Ginger decided to attempt writing her own novel, and in 2003 her first offering, Prairie Peace, was published. Since then, she's dabbled in other genres but always seems to migrate back to her favorite
