Product Description

Mandy didn't expect to be left alone in the wilds of Indiana after taking the wagon train west. Bess, the "mistake" of a prostitute in the largely unsettled West, knows no other life than growing up in a brothel. Deidre, a runaway slave, dreams of reuniting with her beloved husband, Jeremiah, who was sold away from her. The last thing Frederika wanted was to leave her beautiful home in Germany for the rugged Texas frontier. But as secrets are revealed and new chances abound, will all four women discover the kind of forever love and family that transcends any boundary?

    Perhaps it's because I am an old shepherdess and have actually done a lot of farm living that required old-time methods, but the first three stories by Ehresman were just too fanciful for me. No two person family who didn't sell dairy products. living in a remote area would endure all the effort and expense of milking out two dairy cows twice a day because they could not possibly have a use for TEN GALLONS of milk each day- regardless of how charming the thought of milking two cows may seem to someone who has not actually milked a dairy animal. The same goes for the young woman who supposedly completed a full week's worth of household chores including pumping water and operating a wood-stove ALL IN ONE DAY...and then just because she also baked two batches of cookies AND felt so good that evening that she joined the children in singing several songs. The actual operation of a wood-stove would not allow the temperature regulation needed for all of the chores she supposedly did. She also did a dis-service to the pioneer farm-wife who worked unbelievably hard to accomplish all she did in a full week. Also the children never got into squabbles, were cranky, or lacked wisdom. The townsfolk also showed much more care and understanding than would be realistic for human nature.

    The fourth story in the book by Mitchum was absolutely excellent. Yes, the character endured MANY hardships that seemed to depress one reviewer, but that was the reality of life in that time-period - AND the young woman did preserver. I found this book encouraging because her struggles were realistic - and yet they make me appreciate all I have with my modern house and conveniences. It helps me to stop and appreciate the roof over my head, and even white-flour bread and a cup of coffee. I hope Naomi Mitchum writes several more novels as she did a fantastic job of researching the actual conditions for the time-period, and wrote a story that really makes the reader think about ways to overcome their own challenges.

    The Long Road Home Romance Collection is an enjoyable group of four novellas. Each tell the story of women in pioneer times trying to achieve their dreams and goals. The details allow the reader to participate in the character's story as if they are actually there. The love found by these women is truly what their heart desires.

    I received the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    The Long Road Home

    By Judi Ann Ehresman & Naomi Mitchum

    I LOVED this book, it is the first I have read by either author. This is a book of faith and incredible pioneer spirit. The Long Road Home is a four novella romance collection. These books overlapped with some of the same characters and how each of them lived with hardships, deep faith and what it takes to survive. The stories surround strong women (I liked their hard working character) who were struggling to live and survive one day at a time. I could see and feel just how hard pioneer life was for them. It actually made me feel closer to my own distant relatives that I know lived hard lives during that same time period. The hard work of caring for the family, the livestock, all the chores involved with running a farm. Holding tightly to their faith that tomorrow would be better. There is love, perseverance, faith, dogged determination, great integrity in some characters as well as fearful cowardice in others. The characters are very well developed, I felt like part of the family when I finished the book.

    A fine quality paperback, the cover is thick and embossed with thick pages and rough edges that made this a beautiful book, a keeper for sure!



    Thank you to the author and publisher for the copy of this book I received through The Book Club Network (bookfun.org) in exchange for my honest review.

    This book contains four novellas which portray strong Christian woman who must learn to make it on their own. I am normally not really a fan of novellas but this book really drew me in. The first three novellas are written by Judi Ann Ehresman while the fourth is written by Naomi Mitchum. While the first three tend to tie together, the fourth was a stand alone by the other author.

    A Long Road Home tells the tale of Ethan and Mandy. Going west with the wagon train, they settle in Indiana. However, Ethan is restless and soon leaves to work for the railroad feeling he can make more money.

    On the Wings of Grace, introduces us further to Bess who Ethan meets. Finding that "Yes even God can love her", Bess knows she must change professions. However, can a person really change and be accepted?

    Where Two Agree, brings us back to Deidre and how she ended up where she was that day. Will she find her true love again or will they forever be separated?

    Finally, The Reluctant Immigrant, is the story of Frederika. She must leave her native country to travel and be with her father. He has chosen to live in the wilds of Texas. Will she make it to her destination?

    While the first three where somewhat intertwined, each had its own underlying message about God and His works. Will all of these women find what they are searching for or will they be left to struggle alone? Will each learn that no matter what God loves them and will pull them through even the bleakest moments in their lives? The fourth novella tells of a woman who starts prideful and selfish but must learn to lean on God and all he gives or she may not make it until the end.

    I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.

    Four stories of young women in the unsettled west maturing in life and spiritually. The first 3 stories are connected to one another and include a young wife, a prostitute and a runaway slave. The fourth story is about a young lady who immigrates with her family from Germany to Texas and endures many trials. These young ladies all learn to depend on God. The stories are well written, hold your attention and are unique stories of faith. I recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction.
