Prairie Song

Anna Goben is a good woman trying to do what is best for her family.  She is even willing to sacrifice romance and true love in order to take care of her mother and grandfather.  After they learn of her brother's death in the war, Anna decides to move out west in hopes of fresh start for her whole family.  It is a good decision for everyone including trail worker, Caleb Reger, who has his own issues with responsibility and always doing what is right for those around him.  He tries to hide his past but must confront it and learn from it.

The story is also about the people who travel together out west.  As with any group, not everyone is going to get along.  That is true in this story.  But in order to survive, these people must learn to set aside their differences and help each other.  It is a good lesson for all of us.

In this book of historical fiction, it is expected that Anna and Caleb fall in love.  They do, but is is not without some complications and frustrations.  There are some surprises along the way but the ending is pleasing enough.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.    Check out the author's blog or here for more information.
