“Luke” Hamilton has always been sure that she’d never marry. She accepted that she would spend her life alone when she chose to live her life disguised as a man.
After working in a brothel for three years, Nora Macauley has lost all illusions about love. She no longer hopes for a man who will sweep her off her feet and take her away to begin a new, respectable life.
But now they find themselves married and on the way to Oregon in a covered wagon, with two thousand miles ahead of them.

A Friendly Rater
By far this is in the top tier of books I’ve enjoyed reading. (And I’ve read a lot lol...) It’s not all about the romance which I like, it’s about the struggle of choices and hardship of change. The sequels to this story is just as great, one of the few book I’ll actually buy in physical paperback.
