Product Description

A City Girl Far from Home...Sarah Marshall just wants to go home. It wasn't her idea to leave Chicago and head west in search of gold, but her uncle's ambition left her no choice. Neither was her intention to settle in Kansas City with her ailing aunt, but being penniless and without possessions brings little bargaining power. Pretty soon, she resigns herself to her fate, however unfortunate. It isn't as if she has a home to go back to.

A Country Boy Seeking to Right a Wrong...Ethan Harper, the youngest of three brothers, enjoys a peaceful existence helping run his family's stage shop along the Santa Fe Trail. Only one cloud continues to darken his horizon-guilt over the tragic death of his oldest brother's wife. The only acceptable penance Ethan can think of is finding another woman to marry his brother and help raise his motherless children.

Publisher's Description

Sarah Marshall never wanted to leave Chicago and head west on a wagon train bound for the New Mexico Territory, but she wasn’t given a choice. The rugged trail is no place for her ailing aunt—and tending oxen and gathering buffalo chips is no job for a sophisticated young woman. All Sarah wants is to see her aunt safely to Santa Fe, and then she plans to return home to the Windy City.
Ethan Harper, the youngest of three adult brothers, enjoys a peaceful existence helping run his family’s stage stop in Kansas, along the Santa Fe Trail. Only one cloud continues to darken his horizon—guilt over his part in the tragic death of his oldest brother’s wife. The only acceptable penance Ethan can think of is to find Aaron a new wife, and then his two children would have a mother.
A series of misfortunes strands Sarah and her aunt at the Harpers’ Stage Stop, where they depend upon the generosity of the kindhearted Harper family. Soon, the presence of an attractive young woman, however unversed in the ways of prairie living, wreaks havoc on the well-ordered lives of the Harper brothers. Ethan grasps at this chance to get Aaron a wife, but the more interest Aaron shows in Sarah, the less Ethan likes it. And Josh wants his chance at wooing her, too. Will any of the brothers prove himself worthy to Sarah? Or will she finally head home to Chicago, leaving behind a trail of broken hearts?

Author/Artist Review

Author: Vickie McDonough
Located in: Oklahoma
Submitted: June 29, 2013

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I’m Vickie McDonough, and I write mostly historical romances, although I have been known to pen a contemporary story now and then. I was born and raised in Oklahoma and still live there. I’m a wife, mom of four grown sons, grandma, and primary caregiver to my eighty-three-year-old mother. My dream when I was young was to grow up and marry a rancher, but instead, I married a sweet computer geek who is scared of horses. I’ve been blessed to be able to write out my dream through fiction where I often write about cowboys, ranchers, and lawmen.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to set a series in Kansas, so my husband and I took a trip up there. One place we visited was the Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop in Olathe, KS. I fell in love with the 150-year-old home and stories our guide told about the family. As a result of this visit, I decided to set the first book in my Pioneer Promises series on a stage stop in eastern Kansas.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  My poor heroine faces all kinds of problems, but she learns that God has always been there, waiting to help if only she would call on Him. I hope that my readers will take that message away with them and seek God when they face hard times.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My pastor preaches wonderful sermons, and parts of them sometimes find their way into my stories. I also read a lot and get inspiration from books and online sites.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Most of my life, I've been a reader of fiction and I love a great book, so I very much appreciate my readers. On my website Home page, there is a link to a page where you can sign-up to receive my book news, if you'd like to.
