Publisher's Summary

Young, sharp-tongued Paula Masters, used to her cell phones, cherry lattes and designer jeans, suddenly finds herself thrust back in time to 1848 and the Oregon Trail. In modern life, she rebels against the curfews and restrictions of her day, seeing them as unfair hardships. But now in this alien world with its buffalo stampedes, wild Indians, and deadly pestilence, she is about to find out what real hardships are. To get home, she must set aside her rude girl persona and learn how to survive.
On the trek, Paula meets young Daniel Langdon, hunter and part-time scout, and an infatuation quickly becomes a great passion. She realizes this is the love of her life and to get home she will have to leave him behind.
In the tradition of Outlander, The Far Journey is a grand epic of love and tragedy, loyalty and betrayal, peril and survival. Throughout, Paula Masters is tested in body and soul and must discover the strength and toughness inside her.

The Far Journey

The Far Journey: A Timeslip Novel of Survival on the Oregon Trail
: Tom Reppert

A self absorbed sixteen year old girl finds herself flung back in history, 1880's Oregon Trail traveling from the East to West . A wonderful tale with time travel, historical fiction, romance, hardships, Indian attacks, buffalo stampede, illness, injury and many other emotional events. I was drawn into the journey and felt many of the things Paula felt. I hope to find more by this author in the same genre.

The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Patricia Santomasso brings these characters to life.
