When a socialite from the nation’s capital embarks on a journey to the Wild West, her life is changed forever.
A setting populated by hundreds of laborers, outlaws, and Indians is hardly the place for a wealthy general’s daughter. But Josephine Cain is determined to visit her father, who supervises the day-to-day work involved in the grandest ambition of post Civil War America: the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Life with the railroad is far from the proper life Josephine is used to, and she faces deadly gunfights, harsh weather, and vigilante uprisings. She is torn between the West and the East; between her privileged upbringing and the challenges of a new frontier; between the pull of the suitable beau her parents approve of and an attraction to a rough but charming Irish railroad worker. But if Josephine is willing, she just might find a new life, a unique purpose . . . and true love.


My Review:
This is a time period that I really enjoy.  I love the romantic movies set in this period and I really enjoyed reading this story set then.  The times were hard, but life was simple.  This book has just the right amount of history tied in with the wonderful story that is told.  The characters are full and relatable.  The story is romantic and touching.  This was a great easy read and I definitely recommend it if you like romantic novels.


I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
