Publisher's Summary

Abigail Baldwyn might not be a widow after all....
Ever since she received word that her husband, Robert, was killed in the Civil War, Abigail has struggled to keep her Tennessee home and family together. Then a letter arrives claiming that Robert isn't dead, yet he has no plans to return. Desperate for answers, Abigail travels to Independence, Missouri, where she joins a westbound wagon train to find him.
Leading a company along the Oregon Trail isn't part of Hoke Mathews's plans. But then the former cavalry scout gets a glimpse of Abigail - so elegant compared to the rest of their hardscrabble wagon community, yet spirited and resilient. Through every peril they encounter - snakebites, Indian raids, fevers, dangerous grudges - his bond with Abigail grows.
Abigail knew this journey would test her courage. Now it's testing her marriage vows and her heart, daring her to claim a future on her own terms in a land rich with promise.

Enjoyed listening to this one

I enjoyed this story of love on the plains with a few twists. Although I thought the performance was very good, some of the voices were excellent, others didn't seem to match what I thought main male characters should sound like. I enjoyed the Christian elements which were subtle.
