Description

Amity Grenville is set on reaching Oregon’s Sweet Home Valley, where her aunt and uncle have a farm. They were part of the Great Migration of 1843, and Amity saved every letter Aunt Beitris wrote, complete with advice on the journey preparations. Amity is eager for a fresh start, in the hopes that her husband, Garvey, will find a new vocation in farming and leave behind his drinking and gambling ways.

Newly finished with his apprenticeship, blacksmith Shawe Creighton can ply his trade just about anywhere so he agrees to throw in with his best friend’s family on the trek to Oregon. With no family ties, he heads west, thinking Oregon is as good as any place to establish a shop. Fun loving by nature, he’s also looking forward to what the adventure will bring.

In St Joseph doing last-minute preparations for the journey, Amity receives the bad news that Garvey was caught cheating and killed over a poker game. Now men are seeking to claim the wagon and team as their recompense. She barely removes her belongings in time but is faced with either marrying a stranger to comply with the wagon train’s rules or remain behind. Taking pity on her plight, Shawe offers marriage and is immediately faced with her two demands--no drinking or gambling. Intrigued by the outspoken woman, he figures the trip won’t be boring. Will a decision made in haste bring disaster, or will the journey forge bonds neither Amity nor Shawe can imagine?

When Amity’s husband does the unthinkable and gets himself killed, she needs a husband in name only. As in, now. So she can continue with the wagon train heading to Oregon territory and her loving aunt and uncle’s home.

She proposes to her new ‘neighbor’, the blacksmith Shawe Creighton. He initially turns her down, but that only lasts for a few moments. They make a deal that over the next few months they will help each other until the times comes to end the marriage.

Little do they know….

I have enjoyed most of Linda Carroll-Bradd’s romances. They can easily be read in a day. Her H and h are strong, but good people. They might not always agree, but they show respect. And they talk to each other. Amazing!

There was a bit of info-dump that I didn’t need (the list of passengers for one), but all in all, it was a gentle story. Thank you to NetGalley and the author for sending me this arc in exchange for an honest review.
