Expecting The Unexpected Was An Army Scout's Job

Still, Major John Montgomery never anticipated finding love along the Oregon Trail. But Constance Weldon, outspoken, courageous and possessed of a quiet beauty completely at home under the wide Western sky, was like a balm from heaven to his wounded soul…!

She'd promised her dying father she'd drive their wagon west, and Constance Weldon was always and forever a woman of her word. Though keeping that word had proven to be difficult, even dangerous, when her selfish younger sister regularly refused to pull her weight.

    Great western romance

    In 1860, the Weldon sisters left their home in Ohio when their father, a widower banker, decided to relocate in Oregon. In Independence, Missouri their dad died leaving the two young ladies to fend for themselves although they sign on to a wagon train. Led by the older sibling Constance, she and Nettie continue on the journey west><P> The wagon train asks for help from the military stationed at Fort Kearney to escort them through Indian Territory. The post Commandant Colonel Butterworth sends Major John Montgomery and Billy West. Meanwhile Constance and John fall in love, but Nettie selfishly covets the major too. As the siblings argue over whether Nettie is pulling her weight, Billy tries to get her to see he is the one for her. However, besides understanding their deepest feelings, they must contend with Yellow Wolf who has stolen horses from the wagon train and plans to abduct the older Weldon female because of her kindness towards him.<P> This is an exhilarating historical romance that enables the reader to taste the hardships and dangers of the trail. The story line engages the readers from the moment that John almost gets shot by a frightened traveler. The key cast members are a delightful group to follow though Nettie's behavior will have fans wanting to smack her. Still the audience will enjoy traveling west with these intrepid souls, but will especially value the two lead couples.<P> Harriet Klausner
