Wagon Train Reunion by Linda Ford (Journey West)


Second-Chance Courtship

Abigail Black had no choice but to break Ben Hewitt's heart years ago. Her parents had picked another, wealthier groom. Now widowed and destitute, she's desperate to leave her old life behind. The wagon-train journey to Oregon is full of dangers, but she'll face anything—even Ben—for a fresh start.

Ben knows better than to trust Abby again. Between her family's snobbery and his family's protectiveness, avoiding her should be easy. Yet he's still moved by Abby's sweetness and beauty…along with a sadness and strength he never noticed in her before. Forgiving past wrongs would be a struggle—but the hardest struggle would be letting Abby go once more.

  • My review: Wagon Train Reunion by Linda Ford (Journey West)

    4 stars

    This set up a new series that I want to read all of it. Full of drama, relationships, scriptures and all amid a wagon train to Portland. Lots of trials, action, characters that I want to see more of.  I wonder who is going to be the focal point for the next book?  Is there a thief among them and who is it?

    Abigail Black is one of the main characters.  She is a widow traveling with her parents.  Her mom is not a likeable character. Abigail does what she can do help anyone.  she plans to never marry again. Her mother wants her to marry someone else with money when they get to Oregon.

    Ben Hewitt got his heart broke years ago when Abigail married someone with a better future than what he could give her.  He is traveling to Oregon with his two sisters to join his brother their.  He is set over a certain amount of wagons on the train. One of them is Abigail;s family in fact they are ones to which have to share a cooking fire with every night.

    Years ago Ben and Abigail memorized a bunch of scriptures together and they quote them to help through tough times along the way.  It is used in a natural way that fits the story.

    It gives you a taste of what some of the pioneers faced traveling out west.  Crossing rivers, illness, getting along, walking and how to cope with a different lifestyle of traveling every day they can.

    The setting for the book starts in Independence,  Missouri May 1843 and traveling out west to Oregon.
    I enjoyed Wagon Train Reunion.  I will read more books by Linda Ford in the future.

    I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give honest review of Wagon Train Reunion.
