A Dream For Tomorrow

Full Product Description

Join the romantic adventure of Elizabeth Martin in ‘A Dream for Tomorrow’ as she journeys across 18th century America in search for new beginnings in the second installment of the Homeward on the Oregon Trail series.

Elizabeth and her two children have endured half of the journey towards greener pastures, but now their wagon train faces the dangers on the mountains. With high roads, treacherous river crossings and depleting food supplies tension builds among the weary travelers. But amongst the challenges, love begins to blossom – only it’s blossomed in three hearts.

The bereaved Elizabeth has a difficult choice to make, between the wealthy widower Will Branford or the mysterious trail scout Eli Kincade. Will she choose the security and riches of Will, or follow her heart towards Eli?

The adventure continues in ‘A Dream for Tomorrow’ with wobbly wooden wagons, blossoming romance and difficult decisions. Anyone who enjoys a cozy, heart-affirming read will thoroughly enjoy this wonderful read, along with the whole series.

Publisher's Description

Bestselling author Melody Carlson (more than 5 million books sold) continues her Homeward on the Oregon Trail series with this second romantic adventure.

Elizabeth Martin and her two children have made it through the easy part of their journey, but now their wagon train faces high mountain passes, dangerous river crossings, and decreasing supplies. Desperate circumstances bring out the best and worst of the travelers, including Will Bramford, the wealthy widower who is pursuing Elizabeth, and Eli Kincade, the independent and solitary guide who has stolen Elizabeth’s heart.

As the group reaches the Oregon Country, the emigrants part ways to find their new homes. Elizabeth and Will and their families have made arrangements to board a ship that will take them south along the coast. Will Eli change his plans and accompany Elizabeth to her new and permanent home? Or will his mysterious past continue to keep them from love?

“This was a sweet, enjoyable story. I would have liked to have seen more of the hero, but I suspect his strengths were showcased in book one. This series is recommended for fans of inspirational historical fiction, or anyone looking for a cozy, heart-warming read.” – Sue Asher, HistoricalNovelSociety.org Review.

“I was so excited for this book to come out!  The first book ended in the middle of their journey and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next!  The characters and the setting of the story just come alive in my mind, and I can’t wait for the third book to come out!” – Kelly Klepfer, NovelReviews Blogger Review.

Back Cover Text

Life on the trail was challenging. Will settling down prove just as difficult?

It’s the summer of 1857, and Elizabeth Martin is pursuing the dream she shared with her late husband – to take their two children west and start a new life. Along with her parents, her newly married brother, and even her devoted farmhand, she has joined a substantial wagon train and successfully completed the first half of the long trip from Kentucky to the southern Oregon coast. And along the way, Elizabeth has caught the eye of fellow traveler Will Bramford, a wealthy and charming widower from Boston, and also of Eli Kincade, the handsome but mysterious scout for the wagon train.

Now the time has come for the train to divide as some travelers head south to California. Several emigrants, including Will and his children, have decided to settle near Elizabeth and her family, but Eli is chosen to lead the southbound group. Elizabeth must decide whether to do the prudent thing – to accept Will’s proposal and the security he can provide – or to follow her heart and fall in love with a man who seems wed to life on the trail.

Romance, adventure, and faith are on display in this second book in the Homeward on the Oregon Trail series.
