Bring Civil War widows West – the bachelors in the Washington frontier could use a mate. Find a happy ending! Or at least, so the brochure promises. Jane's young (widowed) stepmother signs up, along with Jane and her young stepbrother. Seattle isn't exactly the paradise that was promised, so Jane's stubbornness and good humor must carry her from skinning an otter to building a canoe, along with dealing with everyone from giggly young ladies to the neighboring Native Americans. And will she manage to break away from her selfish stepmother? Well-researched historical fiction, vivid setting, finely-drawn characters, and a fun, enlightening read.
