Take a three-thousand mile journey with Amanda Pearson as she leaves the disgrace of a broken engagement and enters the work of a Quaker mission in the western wilds. The trip is fraught with danger, and Amanda is near death before reaching her destination. Among those she meets are an Indian woman who becomes her first convert and a half-Indian trapper who seems to be her biggest critic. But love follows her into the wilderness and will determine the course of her future. You are sure to enjoy this historical romance adventure from New York Times bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter.

Amanda Pearson’s fiance decided he likes someone else more than he likes her, so she decides to go on a mission in the western wilderness. The journey is tough, and she barely makes it.

There are many different characters in this book. Some I liked, some I didn’t, but all were interesting. I enjoyed reading about Amanda and Buck the most, but also loved following Jim and Mary’s story.

The book is a mix of subjects. There’s history, romance, tragedies, faith, courage and perserverance.

This is a very good book! I would recommend it to anyone. The Christian aspect is not overly done so even non Christians should enjoy this book.

  1. Hi Vicki,

    I was checking this one out on Goodreads and discovered the the author is considered to be something of a recognized authority on the Amish community, although I see that in writing ‘Women Of Courage’, she has turned to highlighting the Quaker community … so I am just wondering how well that transition has worked?

    This one sounds like a gentle ‘easy’ read, great for those times when I don’t want to feel too challenged by anything ‘heavy’.

    Nice review, as always.


  2. I’m glad you enjoyed this book, Vicki. It would be interesting to learn more about the Quakers and their missions.

  3. I have family members and a few friends who have gone on a few missions, so it was interesting for me to read that part of the book.
