Disowned, she came to America anyway. Attacked and left pregnant by a vicious mob, she still pressed on. Finally, in spite of being accused of theft by the vilest of her attackers, Giselle tries to remain as upbeat and uncomplaining as a prairie wildflower as she travels on to Zion.
What I thought: This book was a quick, fun read. I enjoyed the story, and the twists and turns of the romance that developed between Trace and Giselle. I would have liked a bit more development with the characters and thought it strange that the two would sleep next to one another on the trail if they were only being married in name only. The plan was to have the marriage annulled once Giselle safely reached SLC. During that time period, propriety was everything, especially to a young LDS girl. But I still got caught up in the drama of it all.
The thing that bothered me was the poor editing. I don't blame this on the author AT ALL. An editor, or the publisher, at very least, should taken more pride in perfecting the manuscript before it published.
If you want a fun, clean romance though, this is a great story of triumph.
