Expecting The Unexpected Was An Army Scout's Job

Still, Major John Montgomery never anticipated finding love along the Oregon Trail. But Constance Weldon, outspoken, courageous and possessed of a quiet beauty completely at home under the wide Western sky, was like a balm from heaven to his wounded soul...!

One of my pet peeves is characters who are martyrs to their horrible families. This story takes that theme in an unexpected and really interesting direction, because the heroine recognizes her sister's narcissism, admits to feeling fear and hatred towards her, and grows a pair. Although the writing isn't particularly deep and (view spoiler), I was impressed by the originality of the story.

Endearing historical western romance set on a wagon train journey to Oregon. Loved Constance and John. They didn't beat around the bush when they fell in love. But her younger sister, Nettie, was a manipulative, self-centered, obnoxious piece of work, and was, of course, determined to throw their romance off course to the very end. She certainly didn't deserve Constance. Nice ending though I thought Nettie deserved more comeuppance. Sweetly entertaining. 3.5 stars.

I was born in Oregon and raised in northern California. While growing up I listened to my grandparents' and my mother's stories about life on the ranch they owned in Douglas County, some miles east of Roseburg.

Later (after I retired from work as a professional editor for an aerospace firm) I began writing fiction based on these stories... my first book was "Western Rose," which is based on the unu
