Read full description of the books:
Three young women leave Independence, Missouri in the spring of 1852 on a wagon train bound for the Oregon territory. Brenna and her family are Irish immigrants. Rebecca travels with her large family from Iowa. Emily is a young bride traveling with her husband Ernest. Six months and two thousand miles later they reach their destination much changed from who they were when they started. Daily life on the wagon train is challenging. Cholera is rampant, crime not unheard of, and death is an ever present visitor. Their hopes and fears are realized in unforgettable experiences of love and loss. Through it all they form a bond with each other that will last a lifetime and encompass the vast and untamed regions of the heart.

Read information about the authorWhat's my favorite all-time book? I used to say The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers. Recently I re-read it and I wouldn't say that anymore. It's still beautifully written and it hasn't changed. It's me who's much changed from who I was in college a long time ago.
I used to never quit on a book. I would stick with it till the end, always thinking that it would redeem itself. Not any more. I'll usually read at least 25% and if it hasn't moved me in some way by then I put it down.
I grew up in St. Cloud, Minnesota, a college town of (then) about 40,000 people. As a child and young adult, I spent summers engaged in active pursuits within a stone's throw of the Mississippi River. After graduating from high school, I attended St. Cloud State College where I received a B.S. degree in education. I spent two years teaching in a lovely small town in rural southeastern Minnesota before moving to Albuquerque, NM where I attended the University of New Mexico and obtained a Master's Degree in education.
I taught mostly middle school English and History for another 28 years and retired in 2003. I still live in Albuquerque and I have two children and four grandchildren and spend my time traveling, sailing with my husband in our 38' sailboat, doing service projects at my church and playing with my grandchildren.
