The Journey of Josephine Cain by Nancy Moser

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest and review.

The Journey of Josephine Cain by Nancy Moser
Trade Paperback
ISBN: 9780824934279
Book 6 in the American Tapestry Series

Synopsis: When a socialite from the nation's capital embarks on a journey to the Wild West, her life is changed forever.
A setting populated by hundreds of laborers, outlaws, and Indians is hardly the place for a wealthy general's daughter. But Josephine Cain is determined to visit her father, who supervises the day-to-day work involved in the grandest ambition of post-Civil War America: the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Life with the railroad is far from the proper life Josephine is used to, and she faces deadly gunfights, harsh weather, and vigilante uprisings. She is torn between the West and the East; between her privileged upbringing and the challenges of a new frontier; between the pull of the suitable beau her parents approve of and an attraction to a rough but charming Irish railroad worker. But if Josephine is willing, she just might find a new life, a unique purpose . . . and true love.

My review: I think Josephine was a strong woman to leave her city to head into the Wild West and a place that is just starting to develop. One thing that interested me about this book was that is was centered around the building of the railroad. I have been interested in that part of history for a long time. The relationship between Josephine and her father was very strong which was nice to read about. The author did a good job in making the characters in this book seem like real people.  In this book you will read about action, adventure and romance all rolled together what a better mixture. I suggest this book to fans of historical fiction and light romance alike.
