I enjoyed this book a lot. I read this book as an audio book, so my experience may be different than others'.

This is the story of Missie, her marriage to Willie LeHaye, and their adventures together creating their life out west.

The first third of the book or so are their adventures on the wagon train going west. It takes them months to reach their destination and many things, from birth to death and everything in between, happen throughout their journey. Once they finally reach the town where their wagon train ends, Missie and Willie's new land is still a week or more wagon ride away. Missie being pregnant, of course, is forced to stay in town until the baby is born since there is a doctor in town. When the baby is finally born and Willie comes back to town to retrieve Missie and baby, Missie is finally able to see the land that her husband has talked about for so long. At first, she is disappointed, but could never let him know. However, as time goes on, Missie learns to love the new land and homestead she and Willie have set up.

A beautiful story of new adventures in the west. The author doesn't go into too much detail about any one thing, but instead keeps the story moving along to tell of the new family's adventures.
