“Journey to Love” is Book 1 in the Pioneer Romance 2 series.
This book was published in 1985 but it is still available on Amazon and perhaps in your local library.
I happened to find it in my local Little Free Library and I am so glad I did because once I read it I wanted more, which lead me to do a search at my local library where I found the rest of the series is available! I was able to obtain Book 2 in the series which is titled ” Dreams Beyond Tomorrow” which I just finished and I am now awaiting Book 3 which is titled “Seasons of Love”.
If you enjoy reading Christian Historical Romance you will like these books. They are short, easy reads that are packed with adventure and mystery during the pioneer days of the US.
The main character is Rachel Buchanan who is the daughter of a drunken father and deceased mother. She is desperate to escape from her home because her father is planning to sell her into a forced marriage with the first man who pays the highest price. She meets a man Colby Lord who is leading a wagon train heading West for Oregon territory and begs him to take her along. The story continues as he agrees and marries her in name only to save her honor.
Book 1 details the adventures and misfortunes on the trail West, and the other three books in this series will continue the story of Rachel and her adventures in Oregon territory in the 1800’s. I am anxiously looking forward to read Book 3 next.
I was not required to review these books and all comments are my own.
