About the Book:
The Overland Trail, 1853: Naomi May never expected to be widowed at twenty. Eager to leave her grief behind, she sets off with her family for a life out West. On the trail, she forms an instant connection with John Lowry, a half-Pawnee man straddling two worlds and a stranger in both. But life in a wagon train is fraught with hardship, fear, and death. Even as John and Naomi are drawn to each other, the trials of the journey and their disparate pasts work to keep them apart. John’s heritage gains them safe passage through hostile territory only to come between them as they seek to build a life together. When a horrific tragedy strikes, decimating Naomi’s family and separating her from John, the promises they made are all they have left. Ripped apart, they can’t turn back, they can’t go on, and they can’t let go. Both will have to make terrible sacrifices to find each other, save each other, and eventually…make peace with who they are.

The pain. It’s worth it. The more you love, the more it hurts. But it’s worth it. It’s the only thing that is.

Another great book by Amy Harmon, I really can't get enough of her novels, she writes with such beautiful prose and it made the story believable. This one kept me interested because of the setting and all the history involved, I became deeply entrenched pretty quickly. I so enjoyed reading about the love between John and Naomi and all the heartaches and setbacks they had to endure and overcome on the trail. The book held my interest and had just enough suspense with not knowing which way the story would turn. An easy and enjoyable read and an awesome escape into a great story.

Some cultures do not mix. It is like having fins but trying to live on land....So be a turtle!
