I was really happy that they finally got together, but they took their sweet time about it.

I liked this book even more than book #1. I suppose that is due in part to the first book being largely background, along with the first parts of the grand adventure.
I won't summarize the story, as it is described well already. All the characters are well thought out, but in book #2 I was pleased to witness them grow and mature.; particularly in Jordana's case, as her sense of adventure and self-proclaimed maturity (based on her age, 18) had been setting her up for hard learned lessons a

Even though at times the story dragged along, it still was an interesting subject matter (pioneers crossing the country & difficulties they faced). But even more would have preferred that the author did not keep repeating certain aspects of the main character's (female) personality traits... made her sound very whiny while at the same time the author was trying to convey what a strong-willed woman she was.

Wonderful story

I love Jordanna's independence, but at times I was very frustrated with her and sympathized with Brenton. I'm glad Caitlyn found God and in turn, she and Brenton were finally able to fully express and accept each others love. I'm hoping that Jordanna has a love story as well.

Liked this one a lot better than the first, I think I'm discovering that this author takes a while to get rolling, but by the end of the first book and definitely starting with the 2nd, develops a great story and her historical details are amazing!

I liked this book better than the first in the series. Very interesting to hear about what it took to build a transcontinental railroad. Victoria was interesting to me in this book-I could identify with her in a lot of ways.

Historic Romance (Christian) - E-Reader

You won't want to put this book down. The Civil War. A Brother, Sister & newly arrived Irish gal. They leave the east coast for California. A lot of action & complications, & love, but through their faith they kept going.
