For three years she endured his neglect and forced poverty until her presence was requested by the high and mighty in-laws. To her shock, she learned some disturbing news that put her in a sticky situation. Living a long way from any family, she was forced to direct her own path taking her even farther from the security of loved ones. Just as she was about to plant roots, she heard from her absent husband with a threat to find her if she didn't return the money his parents paid her to disappear. Again she was uprooted and went even farther west into territory where it would be difficult to find her.

    After experiencing abandonment and an annulment of marriage, Loretta must make her own way in the world. Though dangerous to travel alone, she finds good people along the path to her future home - an old, unused logging camp. And what good neighbors she finds in Pioneer Peak who help her turn the logging camp into a ranch. She’s content to stay unmarried, and after an accident that scars her face, she’s sure she’ll never experience becoming a wife and mother.

Though dangerous to travel alone, she finds good people along the path to her future home - an old, unused logging camp. And what good neighbors she finds in Pioneer Peak who help her turn the logging camp into a ranch. She’s content to stay unmarried, and after an accident that scars her face, she’s sure she’ll never experience becoming a wife and mother. I'm drawn to historical fiction in which a woman is forced to make her own way due to difficult circumstances. I liked the setting and cast of characters, especially sweet Loretta. Despite the trials she's faced, she embraces life and continues to trust God. Lovely story. However, as a self-published book, it could have used another edit before being published.

It was with joy I finished the book feeling that they indeed had a very satisfied life!

    Loved this book! Jean Kuhnke is one of my favorite authors. I have to say she does not follow the cookie cutter patterns of so many books. Her stories are filled with strong, independent women who insist on making their way in the world. And along the way they find love, but that is not the focus. Loretta went through a loveless marriage where she was abandoned in poverty. When the way opens up for her to leave that marriage, she takes it as a challenge to make her way out West.

    Hope and Faith This was a great book of hope and Faith. Unfortunately I read it in one day so now I have to wait for my next chance to get another of this author's books. Lory's Faith at always looking forward and hope of leaving the bad in the pass makes me want the live by her example. Finding Hollis after all she went through was a blessing for her. I can't wait to read one of Jeans next stories. Hope and Faith This was a great book of hope and Faith.

    A Bend in the road It was more than a bend really. Nolan was just a ungrateful spoiled rich kid that never grew up. His parents especially his mother was his problem. The author show that by putting your faith in the lord and hard work gives many riches that money can’t buy or provide. Very heart warming story. Wish a series could come of it. The sister needs her own novel.

    Always like a Jean Kuhnke book! I chose this rating because it is a good book and a great story. Jeans books are always clean with no sex or bad language, but with romance. All her stories have good overcoming evil. They are set in historical times and I always learn so much about how people lived back when.

    Another good one from Jean Kuhnke. Her stories are always good, heartwarming . About people acknowledging that with God , all things are easier to bear. She always has such a good story to tell. The thing I had a problem with were typographical errors, sometimes a wrong word, etc. and that was a distraction.

    Keep the faith and it sustains you. Through trial and tribulations Loretta kept her faith. She triumphed over her problems and God provided for her. Excellent book - the characters came to life thru the authors skills.

    Wonderful book Each of Ms. Kuhnke’s books I have read have a similar story line but I never tire of it because each is somewhat different. I look forward to reading another one of her books.

    Obviously self-published. Needs an editor to correct grammatical errors.
