The Journey of Josephine Cain By Nancy Moser…Plus Giveaway!

The Journey of Josephine Cain  

By Nancy Moser


About this Book

A pampered socialite embarks on a journey to the Wild West where 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 from the nation’s capital. 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, and courageous, she just might find a new life, a unique purpose . . . and true love.

My Thoughts On This Book

This was such a good book to read. Josephine was a young lady that knew that she didn’t want to live in her home with an Aunt and a Mother that was still grieving the loss of their sons who was killed the year before in the war. But how was she going to get out of the house and live her own life. Well, she finally figures out a few ways to vacate the house for and get a taste of a different kind of life.

I love Josephine’s feisty attitude. She is determined to do what she wants, and will stop at nothing. The pampered socialite she was, she was in for a rude awakening visiting her father out west where he worked on the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Life was definitely not pampered in the west, but Josephine didn’t let the difference of lifestyle stop her from helping those in need. I fell in love with Josephine immediately and enjoyed reading about her journey. And the romance was so very heartwarming.

And in addition to the fantastic story, the history surrounding the building of the Transcontinental Railroad was awesome and so informative. This is a subject I haven’t read a lot about, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this bit of history. Nancy Moser did an awesome job of taking readers back to that era of time, and how life was for those working on the famous railroad that connected the east to the west. As you can tell, I love, love this story, and I really think you will too if you check it out!
