The Journey of Josephine Cain by Nancy Moser Book #Review

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 THOUGHTS-I really enjoy reading a historical novel when it is apparent the author took time to do their research. So it was with great joy I read and reviewed The Journey of Josephine Cain by Nancy Moser. Talk about history! It is almost enough to get a history lesson:)

Josephine is quite a determined young lady. One of my favorite parts in reading this book was seeing her mature and change. We are talking a genteel lady who wears fancy outfits and hasn't done much as far as work. And then she takes a trip out west and you see her grow. She makes for a great heroine. I personally lover her and the way she takes a stand, even while being under pressure and unsure of herself. If you like history in fiction form, this is one I would urge you to pick up!!
