Book Blurb
How far will she go to follow her dreams?

The Civil War stole a father and brother from Faith Lindberg–as well

as Royal Baxter, the man she wanted to marry. With only her

grandfather left, she dreams of leaving Noble Springs, Missouri, and

traveling west to Oregon to start a new life, away from the memories

that haunt her. But first she must convince her grandfather to sell the

family’s mercantile and leave a town their family has called home for


When Royal Baxter suddenly returns, Faith allows herself to hope that

she and Royal will finally wed. But does he truly love her? Or will

another man claim her heart?

My Thoughts on this book!

Faith and her grandfather had lost so much, the only way Faith thought they could be happy again was to take off on the Oregon Trail and start a new life in the West. This has been Faith’s dream for a while, and now it was making her grandfather realize the same thing. But getting him to leave their home in the small Missouri town of Noble Springs was not going to be easy.

But then things started happening that drew Faith to their home, even though Faith wasn’t aware of it yet.

Her grandfather put Faith in charge of the store, letting her run it as she pleased. This did not make a lot of the men in the area happy, but it wasn’t long before these men, as well as the rest of the neighbors were warming up to Faith, accepting her as the new store manager.

Royal, a guy that promised Faith he would keep her ribbon and remember her while he was in the war came back in town. And though he didn’t remember her or the ribbon when she asks him about it, he decided to woo her, but did he really love her?

Then she meets Rosemary, who becomes like a sister to Faith. Not to mention Rosemary’s brother Curt, to which both Curt and Faith were attracted to each other, but neither seemed to realize it for a while.

Her grandfather’s health issues, Curt becoming friends with her granddad and spending time with him, the break-ins, Curt always being there for her when she really needed someone.

But Faith just couldn’t see that they should stay in Noble Springs, she was still determined to leave, after all this was her dream.

I thoroughly enjoyed this historical fiction story, with characters that I loved more and more as I continued to read the book. That is all buy Royal, this guy just irks me, I wanted him out of Faith’s life to give Curt a chance! The history in the story is so very detailed you feel like you are there, walking around the little town visiting all of the shops, talking to the owners of the businesses there. I love the feel of the small town atmosphere where everyone knows everyone else, well, and everyone knows your business, which is not so good sometimes too! But still, I love it! I am looking forward to Ann Shorey’s next book in this series. This is just a wonderfully good read, so go grab a copy for yourself to read and enjoy!
