Litfuse Publicity Book Tours Presents: The Journey of Josephine Cain (American Tapestries) by Nancy Moser
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.

I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. It had a lot of twists and turns, and a lot of true facts.
Josephine Cain's life, and a lot of others, was interrupted by the Civil War. Her Father was a General, and is now heading a major portion of building the new Transcontinental Railroad. She has grown up a product of a wealthy class family. All is about to change. She is now being pursued by Lewis Simmons, and all that she sees, is what she wants to see.
Follow her and her Lewis as they head for a visit West...she also meets Hudson. Wow two, one she is now engaged to, and the other has a woman he is promised to. We visit with the General, and rescue a child, before heading back once more to Washington.
This book does not disappoint, we are there when Lincoln is shot, and again when history is made with the last rail put into place. We are also part of the taming of the West. You never know what is around the next corner, there are a lot of surprises, and some famous names that are dropped.
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
