Recently widowed Hallie Wells is facing hard times. The sudden demise of her husband after selling their farm and just about everything they owned to travel west on the Oregon Trail, has left her stranded with an eight year old son.

At this point, she's out of options.
Cooper Jerome's life has been anything but easy. Guilt from his part in the War of the States and failures from his life before the war, plague is conscience. When Mrs. Wells asks him to drive her oxen to Oregon, his first inclination is to decline. However, one look at her boy, who reminds him of another boy, pulls on his heart string until his only option is to help the widow make the several months crossing. Will the journey becomes his catalyst for change?

I found it hard to get into the book. But after several chapters I couldn't lay it down. The struggles these people had were sad and happy. I'm not sure I could have continued. What strength they had to keep going so they could have a good life. Turned out to be a great romance.
