Summary

Larkspur Nielsen is ready for a change. Her parents have passed on, and her older brother is successfully running the family business. She bristles at the small-mindedness that permeates life in her small Ohio community, and she sees little chance of a satisfying future there. She has a little money saved, and after turning the tables on a crooked gambler who had fleeced several locals, including her younger brother, she can stake a new start for herself and her three sisters. 

As the gambler's threats of revenge echo in her ears, she and her sisters head to Independence, Missouri, to join a wagon train bound for Oregon. Knowing that four women traveling together will draw unwanted attention, Larkspur dons a disguise, passing herself off as "Clark" Nielsen, accompanying his three sisters. But maintaining the ruse is more difficult than Larkspur imagined, as is protecting her headstrong, starry-eyed sisters from difficult circumstances and eligible young men. Will reaching their goal prove too much for them?

Sweet story

I enjoyed listening to this sweet story about young homesteaders in the Midwest. Twist and turns and Gods presence along the way.

Wonderful story

I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. The presentation was lovely. I like that faith in God was threaded throughout the story as part of daily life.

Very nice faith based story!

I love faith based audio books. This one had tragedy and triumph. The characters were strong women yet soft and tender. Enjoy!

Wonderful

This story built on faith reminds one of the power of believing in the Lord. It reminded me to let go and let God. He is in control. Great story and narration.

Outstanding in every way that matters!

As a believer in Christ this was a lovely and poignant story in how Christians can live and pray and depend on a loving God for guidance in their lives! I loved the hymns (period appropriate) lyrics were interwoven along with references to the Bible when they related to the characters in the story. I love historical novels and this is a lovely one! Thank you Lauraine Snelling❣️

Not too mushy

I liked the story line, the characters, and the drama. I liked the villains but must have missed what happened to them. I kept thinking they would pop up somewhere unexpectedly.
