Kit Austen's Journey (A Western Historical Romance) by Libby Sternberg
--Follow the Oregon Trail in a sweeping western historical romance featuring an iconic cowboy and a woman with secrets--
KIT AUSTEN’S JOURNEY takes readers on the arduous trip west in 1851 when fortune seekers raced to take advantage of the California gold rush.
But for Kit Austen, the passage is a journey away from danger, rather than toward treasure. When she joins trail captain Daniel Winchester’s company, she finds both.
First, the perils of the journey—especially for a single woman—try her body as well as her spirit. And then, her growing admiration and affection for Daniel test her determination to stay true to her marriage vows, even though they’d been made to a villain.
Daniel, too, struggles with his attraction to Kit. A taciturn man with his own deep sorrows, he knows she deceived him to join the company, but doesn’t know why. As he faces the journey’s familiar risks, he’s confronted with a new danger—losing his heart to the strong but secretive Kit.
KIT AUSTEN’S JOURNEY offers readers a story of faith, heartbreak and love on the Oregon Trail...told by a multi-published author whose historical research has been praised by critics and readers alike.
