Christy Hancock had already made one big journey in her young life, as an infant in the late 1800's from Ireland to Philadelphia. Now, at nineteen, she wanted to stay put, but her ambitious mother had bigger plans for her. Rather than disappoint her parents, she packed up her things and boarded a train for the Wild West. California to be precise, to educate herself and seek her fortune.
Unfortunately, on the way, things go seriously awry and Christy's journey is derailed in more ways than one.
This tense, action-packed romance tests Christy's mettle every inch of the way as she must jump from the bosom of her protected family to the real world light-years from her intended destination.
Will Christy find the courage to take a chance on love and security in a rough and rugged new land? Does she have the fortitude to make decisions for herself and choose her own destiny? It's all spelled out in vivid prose with flesh and blood characters in the first volume of Orphan Bride's Go West.
