Kentucky, 1854--Elizabeth Martin has mourned her husband's death for three years, but now she feels ready to fulfill the dream they had shared--to take their two children west. The dream becomes reality when her middle-aged parents and bachelor brother surprise her with the news that they want to go as well. After converting three of their best wagons to prairie schooners and thoroughly outfitting them, the little party travels from Kentucky to Kansas City, where they join a substantial wagon train. Elizabeth soon finds herself being drawn to the group's handsome guide, Eli Kincade. The long journey and deepening relationships challenge the travelers to their core, and Eli's mysterious past leaves Elizabeth with more questions than answers.

This is the first book in the series. Melody Carlson drew me into this story about Elizabeth Martin's life as she bravely joins a substantial wagon train with her two children, parents, brother and devoted farmhand traveling to Oregon country. She travels over plains and mountain and faces many dangers and trials until she is halfway to Oregon and then the book ends. I immediately wanted to read book 2 in the series to continue following Elizabeth's travels in her covered wagon. Melody Carlson has again written an engrossing book!
