1845, Oregon Trail, Independence Rock to Fort Hall
As the Macintosh family continues their journey along the Oregon Trail, the scouts come across a wagon accident. OR, could it be another murder.
Two survivors are left . . . a beautiful and frightened Lakota woman, with a tiny baby in her arms.
She will only let one man help her . . . Joel Macintosh.
There are many questions to be answered. One of which is . . . should they bring her back to camp?
Joel has enough of his own to deal with . . . as a pregnant family member is hovering between life and death.
As it turns out, Ojinjintka is far more than the helpless woman Joel thought her to be. What she does for his dying pregnant family member makes the Macintosh family feel forever indebted to her.
BUT, Joel’s been warned. Don’t fall in love with the Lakota woman.
That’s a major problem. He’s sworn he will protect her. And . . . she trusts him.
Will he heed the warnings he’s been given? OR, will he let love and honor lead the way . . .
