A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.
Love and Adventure Are Discovered on the Wilderness Road
In 1794, when Kate Gruener’s father is ready to move the family farther west into the wilderness to farm untouched land, Kate is eager to learn and live out her own story of adventure like he did during the War for Independence. She sets her sights on learning more about their guide, Thomas Bledsoe. Thomas’s job is to get settlers safely across the Kentucky Wilderness Road to their destination while keeping an ear open for news of Shawnee unrest. But naïve Kate’s inquisitive nature could put them both in the middle of a rising tide of conflict. Is there more to Thomas’s Shawnee connections than he is willing to tell? Is there an untapped courage in Kate that can thwart a coming disaster?
I’ve been following this series and enjoying the journey through time and generations. It’s pretty cool to see how our country has changed over the years.
This book takes place as people are moving west. I always enjoy an inside look at this time in our history.
For me I never really connected with this story. My mind was never fully enveloped in this plot and it was very easy for me to walk away. I can’t really explain why, I don’t know. But as always, this is my opinion only and I encourage you to read it for yourself if it sounds interesting to you.
