Journey of the Heart is an amazing collection of romances set in the wild west, offering tales of strong women thriving in a forbidding frontier and finding love. Each story is unique and enticing. I loved them all. They made me laugh, cry and melt … all in good order.
Being a woman in those days wasn’t easy and one of my favorite lines comes from Tanya Hanson’s story, Sorry, about an independently-minded woman born in a brothel and determined to stand on her own two feet. Her aunt abhorred by her riding a bicycle tries to set her straight. “A woman is to be silent and respectful. Not wandering fast and loose on an indecent set of wheels amongst civilized people … and wearing trousers.”
How far we’ve come!
Jacqui Nelson’s story, Following Faith, is a well-crafted mix of adventure, suspense and romance. As the story opens Faith Featherby is abruptly dismissed from her teaching job in a small logging town by the school committee. Nelson draws the characters so well, you feel as if you’re part of the scene, listening to two old bitties accuse her of inappropriate behavior. With no relatives and no friends, Faith sets out to find the little girl she believes owns the spirit horse she has befriended. On the journey she meets Eagle and their adventure together begins. It’s a wonderful romantic story.
The linking theme of modes of transportation in the Old West offers the reader a lot to think about, but for me the central and binding theme is true love.
So far, I've read Following Faith by Jacqui Nelson. It's the story of Eagle Feather and Faith. Orphaned at a young age, Faith is determined to make something of herself and becomes a teacher. Sadly, she is judged unfairly and looses her job and is cast out. Faith has a nurturing nature and has nursed Spirit, (a medicine hat spirit horse) that seems just as protective of her as she sets out to find Yellow Feather, who she believes to be the horses true owner.
Eagle Feather is a warrior that is often hunted and feared. He meets Faith on the trail and before long becomes her protector. But, Faith is a strong, intelligent woman and in turn protects Eagle too.
This story is so well written and so descriptive, you easily get transported to the old west and are traveling on the trail with Faith and Eagle.A beautiful , sweet, romantic, heartwarming story you won't want to miss.
I was so happy to receive this set as a gift.
I received a copy of this book, and this is my unsolicited review.
