A huge thank you to Lake Union Publishing for this copy. It was such a harsh but wonderful story!
I have a shelf dedicated to books that take place or mention my home state of OREGON!! And since this book is set on the Oregon Trail I couldn't be happier.
When we hear the words - The Oregon Trail I'm sure most of us think of the computer game where everyone always seemed to die from dysentery. Here's hoping these characters fair better.

the story is set in the mid 1800 with the center stage being Naomi and John who are travelling to California to caption on the rush. The prologue instantly caught me and had me wanted to turn the pages to see how its gonna give me a ending. Like any good books things got good before they got ...more
I finished this epic tale late last night and I have dreamed the Wild West, the Oregon trail all night. I’ve had a theme tune on repeat in my head, probably from a 70s tv show.
I loved it!
Amy Harmon writes with such cinematography that I could hear the noise of the cartwheels as the beleaguered travellers followed the trail to the land of their dreams.
The May family are centre stage with their wagon loaded with all of their possessions. Naomi May is ...more
What a stunning book! In WHERE THE LOST WANDER, Amy Harmon delivers a story of unwavering love, heartbreaking loss, dangerous excitement, and realistic struggle in the background of the Oregon Trail in the 1850s. Naomi May, recently widowed, is traveling west with her family. On the trail, she forms a unique connection with John Lowry, who is half-Pawnee and half-white.
I loved both Naomi and John. Harmon excels at alternating POV chapters, and I felt that I got to know both ...more
I hate having to say it wasn't for me. I've recently gotten into historical fiction and love it. This book, however, was so slow for almost the entire book. I kept thinking, HOPING, it would pick up. It just barely did towards the end. I'm left teetering here in the middle. The writing was good as always with Amy Harmon ...more
This beautiful and descriptive story starts with a horrific and shocking prologue.
We are then introduced to the May family who are about to embark on a journey across the Oregon Trail travelling in a wagon train ...more
*ARC kindly given in exchange for an honest review, thank you so much*
At first, I could feel a connection to the main characters or to the setting. That historical period is not one of my favorites, but Amy Harmon does it justice.
Written in first person POV from both characters' views, and in present tense, the narration is at times gritty. In addition, the pivotal moment opens the story, which created a tension in me, knowing it was coming up, but not knowing when or why.
I liked the interaction between John and Naomi, her family ...more
