Westward Wedding Journey

Delsie Radford is going to make it to California, no matter the danger or difficulty. Her father may have kept her and her sister apart, but Delsie refuses to miss her sister's wedding...even with only eighteen days to get there. And she's found the perfect escort in Pony Express rider Myles Patton.

Myles can't believe it when a pretty socialite hires him to take her cross-country through rough terrain and dangerous territory. Surely she'll quit before they reach their destination...he's known girls like her before. But the longer they ride together, the more Myles notices Delsie's toughness and kindness beneath her polished exterior. And though they may be worlds apart...they might just be perfect for each other.


My Review: 5 Stars

Delcie might seem like a pampered young woman, but she shows grit and courage in her determination to reach her sister before her wedding. Not many socialites could weather the rough Western terrain the way Delcie does. I had to laugh in a few spots, with the situations she found herself in, as well as feel some pain and heartache in others.

Myles is a rough and tough, not to mention a bit grumpy, Pony Express Rider, and he's not sure Delcie's up to the cross-country ride to California. First impressions can often be misleading and it's hard to judge what a person is really like without seeing that person in many different situations.

I enjoyed the descriptions and characters in this sweet historical story. I've always been a bit fascinated with the Pony Express and how their system worked. Imagining the speed, danger, and dedication these riders experienced is exciting and I loved getting a taste of that. I always enjoy situations that bring an inward glance into a character's life and this book provided those glimpses often. Watching friendships and relationships form and strengthen is such a joyous part of any story and there were many bridges developed throughout these pages and each one wormed their way right into my heart. I've been a fan of Stacy Henrie for awhile and I'm excited to see what she'll write next!

Content: mild violence (moments of peril, attacks, injuries, death--nothing graphic); mild romance (kissing); mild religious elements. Clean!
