About the book:
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.
I really enjoyed reading this book and being transported into the past on this journey with Josephine. Nancy Moser did an excellent job with this book. Although it’s historical fiction the book drew on real history and used some famous names as well. I think that is what makes this such an amazing book. I learned a lot about actual history but in a much more exciting way. The story drew me in from the start and I just couldn’t put the book down. I have already recommended this book to a few of my friends. This would make a great book club read. Plus as a series books you have others to enjoy from this amazing author. You can purchase the book on Amazon.
