Publisher's Summary

In post-Civil War New York City, sixteen-year-old Aislynn Denehy cannot find a job, she has no place to live and no family to help her. Some might think this is a problem; Aislynn believes it is an opportunity. No formulaic romance, this well-researched love story depicts life as it truly was for the thousands of women who went west reaching for a new life. Aislynn's journey begins in a New York City tenement and leads her across the frontier to a Utah mining camp where she must cope with the three very different men in her life: smart, solicitous Tim; good-natured, good-guy Johnny; and the intense but intriguing Liam Moran. Life in the roughshod camp brings small joys and devastating losses. Susan Denning's engaging debut novel races through authentic experiences involving historical events until it erupts in an unexpected ending.

Good story and characters but it ended abruptly with no resolution. Some of the minor plot points were a bit predictable.

Ending terrible

This book ends way before it should and leaves you wondering what became of each of the members of the story. Is it a first in a damn sequel? I hate books with sequels oh my.
It is lame in its inaccuracies as well. I do not recommend it
