Summary:

Abigail Baldwyn might not be a widow after all....


Ever since she received word that her husband, Robert, was killed in the Civil War, Abigail has struggled to keep her Tennessee home and family together. Then a letter arrives claiming that Robert isn't dead, yet he has no plans to return. Desperate for answers, Abigail travels to Independence, Missouri, where she joins a westbound wagon train to find him.


Leading a company along the Oregon Trail isn't part of Hoke Mathews's plans. But then the former cavalry scout gets a glimpse of Abigail-so elegant compared to the rest of their hardscrabble wagon community, yet spirited and resilient. Through every peril they encounter-snakebites, Indian raids, fevers, dangerous grudges-his bond with Abigail grows.


Abigail knew this journey would test her courage. Now it's testing her marriage vows and her heart, daring her to claim a future on her own terms in a land rich with promise.
