Christian romance on the Oregon trail 😉

This well written story captures the adventure of the Oregon trail, family hardships, and Christian values. It is such a heartfelt journey that not only shows the physical struggles but emotional and spiritual challenges along the way. For all who enjoy Christian western romances I highly recommend this book.

Narration was well done. She has a good western style voice that added to the books enjoyment.


I received a copy of the audiobook and I'm voluntarily leaving this review. I am grateful to the author for the opportunity. 😊

A Trek on The Oregon Trail

Amanda and her family are traveling with a wagon train to California when her family is struck down by cholera. Left all alone, Amanda blames God for not answering her prayers. She joins another wagon party to continue to California, but the odd family puzzles her. The brash mother, dandy son, and ill daughter are an odd combination.

When the son, Charles, begins to pursue Amanda, she's tempted to accept him. But her friend Luke warns her not to trust Charles, and she starts to think that things are not all they seem. But before she can decide who to trust, she's kidnapped in the middle of the night.

I've always enjoyed stories about the Oregon Trail, I can't imagine the strength it took to pack up everything and take such a journey. Barbara Goss conveyed all the risks and challenges, and also told a compelling story with interesting characters. I waffled between admiring Amanda as a strong brave woman, to wanting to hug the poor motherless girl. Even though the story was told from Amanda's point of view, Luke was fleshed out so well I felt like I'd read chapters from his as well.

Jan Ross was a good narrator, with an easy pace and speaking voice. She performed different voices for each character. I received a copy of the audiobook and I'm voluntarily leaving a review. This was a clean standalone novel with a Christian message.
