Fiery tempered and quick to react, Abigail Sherwood bridles under the controlling influence of her brother-in-law. How different he was from her father – a gentle parish minister who loved every member in his little church in England. After his death, Abigail and her mother had sailed to the New World to join her sister and brother-in-law in Chelsea, Massachusetts. Little does she imagine that ten years later she would find herself unmarried, and with no prospects, acting as cook and nanny to her sister's rapidly growing family.
When a missionary rolls into town, enthusiastically recruiting families to join the flood of adventurers heading out west, Abigail asks herself, Why shouldn't I set out for Oregon? What could be more exciting than joining a wagon train? With Providence providing a way forward, Abigail finds herself traveling to Serenity Inn, near Independence, Missouri, the half-way point between Massachusetts and Oregon.
Along the way, she encounters challenges that drive her to her knees, seeking God's wisdom and grace. How often she remembers Serenity's words of encouragement. "Abigail, always remember that God is leading in your life. He loves you and wants the very best for you."
Abigail's Dream is the inspiring story of a young woman who learns how to surrender her impulsive nature to her heavenly Father, while facing the rigors of the Oregon Trail.

About the Author

"Joy is a perfume you can't pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself." At conferences from Maine to Hawaii, Alaska to the Caribbean and beyond, Kay Rizzo shares her excitement for living God's abundant life. She delivers spiritual insights with a balance of humor, drama, and vulnerability that moves her audience from laughter to tears to conviction.

Former girls' dean, high school and college English teacher, sold her first book in 1985. Since trading in her grade book for a computer keyboard, she's published 41 books and 1000+ articles, including I WILL DIE FREE (endorsed by Amnesty International); ON WINGS OF PRAISE; and the SERENITY INN SERIES. Her latest books include ELIZABETH, AN SDA GIRL SERIES and POPSICLES, BLACK HOLES AND BURNT TOAST, the 2003 devotional for junior age readers.

In her spare time she writes a monthly column for "Winner" magazine, a positive lifestyle journal for preteens. A facilitator for Florence Littauer's West Coast, "Writers' and Speakers' Seminars," Kay served on the 2002 teaching staff at the Glorietta Christian Writers' Conference.

Kay met Richard, her college professor husband, in the school library at Atlantic Union College. Their 42 year romance produced two daughters, two sons-in-laws and two grandsons. Mini-honeymoons to the coast, kicking back with the grandbabies, making music with family and friends, reading a good book and traveling to far-away places are the Rizzos' greatest loves.

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me riveted from the start. I would love to hear more from Evan and Abby when they reach Wilamette Valley
