Cry of the West: Hallie (Finding Home Series #1)
by Verna Clay
Recently widowed, Hallie Wells is facing hard times. The sudden demise of her husband after selling their farm and just about everything they owned to travel west on the Oregon Trail, has left her stranded. Dare she ask Cooper Jerome, recently returned from the War of the States, if he would put his life on hold for, say, five months to drive her wagon, and that doesn't include his return trip.
