Where the Lost Wander
by Amy Harmon
Category: Historical Romance
Tags: Interracial Couple
Published April 2020
Naomi and her family set out on the Oregon Trail for a better life in California where she meets and falls for a half-Pawnee man. But life on the Trail is filled with hardship and death and staying together may be the toughest thing of all.
To be honest I’m not sure a historical romance novel about life on the wagon trail would have been my first choice in this genre but when Amy Harmon writes it, you pick it up.
And let me say that she didn’t disappoint.
I find Harmon’s writing to be so eloquent and descriptive and that is exactly what she delivered in this romance novel.
I could picture in my mind’s eye the people walking along this wagon train and the various issues they came across. What a tough road they traveled.
Harmon’s characters are also so engaging and captivating. Naomi is a very young woman but she’s not one to hold back. She’s not afraid to speak her mind and she definitely goes after what she wants.
I loved how her parents recognized this spirit in their daughter and didn’t try to squash it. Her mother was an amazing, strong woman. She shared such wonderful insight and her gift of a second sight was a wonderful layer to this story.
John is one of those silent and strong heroes that I adore and fall for. He guarded his feelings for good reason but he was such a captivating man and a strong presence in this story even if he didn’t say much with words.
The beginning of this story was such a strong hook that I kept reading and reading to see what was going to happen.
I was a bit surprised how the story focus turned toward the latter chapters and I also felt like the ending was a bit abrupt when I wanted more. That being said this was one of the best historical romance novels I’ve read and definitely one of the best of 2020.
Recommended for any historical romance reader and lovers of opposites attract love stories.
