    A beautifully written pioneer romance

    Escaping the potato famine in Ireland and traveling to the New World may have been an adventure, but it was one fraught with danger, sickness, and extreme circumstances. Seamus O'Rourke's family have nevertheless stuck together despite their terrible loss and have finally settled in the Montana territory. Wanting to meet his son's need for a wife, Seamus sends away for a mail order bride and that's when the trouble begins. Kevin O'Rourke meets Aileen on the steamboat, not realising that his father has arranged a bride for his brother, and unaware that the woman he has fallen in love with is to be his brother's wife. The attraction between Kevin and Aileen cannot be denied and as their feelings for one another brew in silence, there are other dramatic events at play that throw the family into a frenzy. The story has tragic elements but as the O'Rourkes know, they can achieve anything when they stand together. My emotions were strongly affected as I read this book as there were so many elements that were painful, and yet I could only rejoice when the family found their way through their difficulties. Seamus is a wonderful character and the O'Rourke boys are all to be admired. However, underneath it all is the quiet strength of their mother that has given them the determination to protect those they love. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Superb Book

    Pioneer Dream by Ramona Flightner is the first book in the new series The O'Rourke Family Montana Saga. It introduces us to the O'Rourke family from Ireland. The family, as with millions of other Irish in Ireland, were caught up in the potato famine. The family travels to America for a new start. With well-developed characters, we follow the family members' struggles and joys. With her superb writing skills, the author transports us back in time to the 1860s and the goldfields of Montana. There is romance, intrigue, suspense, mystery, and unexpected twists and turns in this saga. While on a steamboat trip up the Missouri River from St. Louis to Fort Benton Montana Territory, Kevin O’Rourke and Aileen O’Keefe become acquainted and could become romantically interested in each other. When reaching Fort Benton, another man enters the picture. They both seem to bow to the other man as he is interested in Aileen too. Will Kevin and Aileen both decide to select each other? I enjoyed this first book and could hardly put it down. Two more books are coming out very soon in this exciting series. I can hardly wait for them to be released. I have read this book as an ARC read and would have given it more than five stars if they were available.

    AN ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL RIDE!!!

    Magnificent! Ramona has absolutely outdone herself with this little mind-blowing treasure. I was totally floored from the start and in awe of the talent and vivid imagination. How touching and sincere with all the passion, finesse and immense intellect and skill. A raging tempest of fervent events and baffling circumstances, blow this bad boy wide open. Sparks fly as drama, intrigue, misgivings, turmoil, secrets, mounting suspense and disastrous situations along with a boatload of trouble, makes for one chart topping adventure. Bumbling through the trials and tribulations, noting the disarming twists and unexpected turns, melding this baby together piece by piece seamlessly. Twixt, twinned and intermingled, exposing the heartwarming ups and soaring downs, grounding in it's strength and awe inspiring in it's depth, testing our characters in ways they never anticipated. Anarchy, escapades and havoc run amuck, kicking this gem into a tempest, blasting it into a frenzy with a mind-blowing culmination. The characters flow and blend together smoothly transforming into amazing personalities with depth and qualities that make them unique and relatable. Embellishing abundantly detailed descriptions intertwining each scenario with all the zeal and gusto bringing them to life before your eyes. Fantastic job Ramona, thanks for sharing this little fella with us.

    Family

    I received an arc and the opinions and views are my own. This was a wonderful read. The family dynamics were so real, here is a family that care for each other, even when there is a disagreement they still work it out. There are surprises and reunions. Loved the story and now cannot wait for the next one. I would recommend this book.
