This is an outstanding, historical, Christian romance story that I enjoyed reading. Judith is taking care of the sweet baby, Anna she found near a wrecked wagon. Judith got lost, heard a baby crying and found a wagon with the baby's parents dead. Judith wants to keep the baby.
A young handsome man, Gil rides up on his horse finding Judith and the baby crying. Gil stayed to console them. As it got later all three went to sleep. Early the next morning the wagon master found Gil and Judith, he insisted that they must marry to save Judith reputation, even though they were taking care of the baby all night and fell asleep.
This is a well written historical novel of the old West during the wagon train days. The characters were well defined. I felt the adventures of the time period as I read. One thing, was the rides in the wagon were too long. The days could have been shorter, less repeating the daily trips and chores, less about finding Frank's brother, maybe add more adventures. I recommend this book to everyone, Children included. Thank you Ms Ford for sharing this book with us. A very good novel for all.
