Publisher's Summary

Cora feels indebted to the man, Eddie, who saved her and her baby Esther. She travels on the Oregon Trail with him. He intimidates her and has her doing most of the work. He’s jealous, and she knows not to look in another man’s direction.

An early snowstorm leaves her in danger of frostbite, and when Harrison Walsh carries her off to his wagon to be treated, Eddie becomes enraged and drops Cora’s trunk off at Harrison’s wagon. Harrison Walsh was happily married until three months ago, when his wife died. Their dream was to have their own ranch and start a family. Now, he’s alone and brokenhearted. 

When the rest of the wagon train party learns Cora is not married to Eddie, rumors fly, and to save her reputation, Harrison is made to marry Cora. To his surprise, Cora is not the meek women she was when riding with Eddie. He finds himself drawn to this woman of strength and falls for the baby. 

Cora and Harrison both agreed to a marriage of convenience. But when Esther’s father shows up alive, Cora has a big decision to make....

A great Western Romance

Cora's Courage is an excellent start to a new Western historical series, based on the Oregon Trail. I enjoyed the premise and thought the characters were charming and easy to connect with. Cora didn't have it easy on the trail, she was thrown on her own. Luckily she finds a good man to travel on with, and her life transforms. Kae Marie Denino did a fine job with the narration, bringing the story to life. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

What a great romance!

I loved this sweet and clean historical romance. If you like mail order bride books or western romances that are sweet and clean you are going to love this book. It is that on the Oregon Trail with Cora had a baby due to being ravaged by one of the patrons at the saloon wish you worked. It was also a brothel, but Cora didn’t do that she worked in the saloon and one man thought she owed him and blah blah blah. Asking A patron who treated her like she was special to help her escape. Which he did this is Allison he said he would take care of her and the baby but after they married yes it turned into a jerk and abusive jerk. While heading west on the Oregon Trail other people noticed what a jerk he was especially The hero of the story who didn’t like it at all. And that’s when the story gets good boy is it good. It leaves you with that happy feeling which is good, because we chorus deal with Allison you cringe the whole time I couldn’t stand him. Which I was OK with because that is the way Catherine ball wrote that character he is so dispisable. So if you like sweet and clean western a mail order bride stores you’re going to love this but I know I did!
