Book#1: A young girl, a newspaper reporter from New York quit a good job, not knowing anything about the Oregon Trail. She signed up, met a young man and rode with him all the way, they looked after each other. They were amazed by the help they received from others on the train.
Book #2: The was a similar story, a young couple had just married and was on the same train, the train was so long they didn't met until they got to Oregon.
Two good, interesting, clean books in one package. I enjoy reading about the West in the 1800s. The plots were outstanding, the characters were interesting and entertaining. I recommend these books to everyone, especially to young people of all ages. I loved reading about the history. Two well written books.
Book 1 is Grace Miller’s story. Grace wanted to be a reporter, which female reporters weren’t seen at the newspaper she worked for. She decided to move to Oregon City to live with her brother. She planned on going there on a wagon train via the Oregon tail. Her plan was to document everything and serialize it in the newspaper she had worked for and show them that woman can write just as well as men. It was suggested that she shouldn’t buy her own wagon to drive, but to see if there was anyone on the wagon train who had room for her and her few possessions. Jake Burman, a young farmer had room and welcomed someone who could help with the chores. The two worked well together and became friends. When they got to Independence Rock, Grace looked at names carved in the rock thinking to put some of them in her documentation. She saw the names Winnie and John Carter. Later she saw a cross on a grave that had the name John Carter. Was this the same John Carver whose name she saw? She decided she would try and find Winnie Carter when she got to Oregon City. Going by wagon train had it’s hardships, illnesses, deaths, heartaches, amongst other things. A little girl named Molly befriended Grace on the trail. She became her shadow. Molly became an orphan when her parents died in an accident. Fortunately, Molly only got a few scratches and bruises. Grace immediately went to her and brought her into her and Jake’s wagon and took care of her. Would Grace be able to give up Molly when they got to Oregon? What about the attraction that was developing between Grace and Jake?
Book 2 is Winnie’s story. It’s told by Grace from book1 who found Winnie and interviewed her her story. Winnie and John had recently gotten married before they decided to join a wagon train go to Oregon City to claim some of the free land being offered. Winnie didn’t know what she was going to do when she got to Oregon when John died in an accident on the trail. A woman, that she became good friends with, she and her husband told Winnie that she would live with them. Winnie was helped driving her wagon, etc until they arrived at Oregon City. Winnie was having a hard time dealing with John’s death. She had to move on with her life. She found a job working for the merchant in town. He was a good man. He was shy and had a large birthmark on his face. As Winnie got to know him, she could see that something was troubling him. Could they help each other? And what about the attraction for each other that was developing?
This 2 book set is well worth reading. It’s a fantastic read! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!
I received an ARC of this 2 book set. I voluntarily write this, my honest review,
This is a fabulous account of the trip to Oregon by wagon train in 1845. Grace is a Journalist from New York City going to Oregon to join her brother who went to Oregon 2 years ago. Jake is a tenant farmer from Missouri who is going to Oregon in search of a better life. They join forces and help each other on the trip. Grace learns many things during the trip and writes them for publication for the newspaper in New York. The description of the trip to Oregon is so realistic I almost felt like I was on the trail along with Grace, Jake and their traveling companions. This is another fabulous story by Indiana Wake. Definitely a must read.
John age 20 and Winnie age 18 are newlyweds with no children. They follow their dream and head for Oregon by Wagon Train. When they reach Independence Rock they climb to the top and carve their names in a heart on the rock. Further along the trail tragedy struck and John was killed when his wagon ran over him. Winnie is devastated, but with the help of many friends she continued on to Oregon. Upon arrival in Oregon she sold all the farming supplies and was fortunate to find a Job with a local merchant. Will Winnie fine the courage to take a second chance at love? Another fabulous book by Indiana Wake.
