The beautiful tale of a courageous widow who dares the Oregon Trail with a man whose past haunts him at every turn.
Cry of the West: Hallie
by Verna Clay
Recently widowed, Hallie Wells is facing a difficult situation. 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 with an eight year old son. 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. At this point, she’s out of options.
