  • A story of survival

    A story of hardship, endurance, and survival against all odds, this book leaves one feeling in awe of the difficulties experienced by early settlers headed towards California. Reaching deep within herself, Jessie's sole focus is keeping the tiny orphaned baby alive and she will do what it takes to achieve her goal. She also fans the flame of hope within her soul that she will eventually be able to plant the seeds she is carrying with her in rich farming soil. Fortunately, redemption comes in the form of Daniel Bear and an Indian companion, and together the two men see Jessie, the baby, and another survivor, Raymond, down the frozen mountains. Reaching the fort, however, is a continuation of Jessie's problems as she experiences judgment and discrimination as a woman by the residents of the fort and Daniel faces arrest due to rumours that have followed him. Through it all, Jessie remains true to her original goals whilst Daniel discovers an overwhelming desire to keep Jessie safe in spite of her protests that she can manage on her own. This story is painful to read in parts, especially when injustice reigns. I really loved Daniel's character, his ability to set aside anger and revenge in the face of betrayal, and more especially that he did not give up on Jessie and her stubbornness to go her own way. Jessie was frustrating at times as although she was attracted to Daniel, she fought against any form of partnership with him, wanting to do everything her own way. The story is well written and emotional and I was glad that it came to a good conclusion. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
