Beloved, bestselling author of Amish fiction, Wanda E. Brunstetter takes readers on a journey in 1850 along the California Trail.
Only the brave—or foolhardy—would attempt a cross-country journey late in the season. Three wagons meet up in Independence, Missouri, in April 1850, and their owners decide to keep forging ahead despite many setbacks and delays. December finds them in the Sierra Nevada Mountains when a sudden snowstorm traps them, obscuring the trail.
Cynthia Cooper is traveling with her mother and the man she has promised to marry. But as Christmas is upon them and they are hunkered down in a small cabin, she is forced to reevaluate her reasons for planning to marry fellow-traveler Walter Prentice. When a widowed father heading to a California ranch and a gold prospector both show an interest in Cynthia, she weighs her dreams for marriage alongside her responsibility to care for her mother. Can love win over her timid heart?

    A Quick Pick Me Up Reminder of Enduring Faith

    Published by OhioMom on Oct 28th 2020

    Wanda Brunstetter’s new novella, A Christmas Prayer, is a story of enduring faith in the face of trials and hardship. A group of strangers find themselves journeying together across the country in 1800’s America, starting in New York, and heading to California – all in search of better lives. You’ll find someone to connect with as the story unfolds around you. From the young lady planning a wedding, to the brother and sister seeking new endeavors, and the single father, hoping for a fresh start for his young family. I love History, and I especially liked the way Ms. Brunstetter peppered this story with so many details – like me, you will feel like you’re actually part of this wagon train, while safe and sound in your favorite reading spot! Those on this trip face trials they never expected, and everyone is tested as they wonder if they will ever reach their destination. They started out strangers, but friendships develop and love grows where it is least expected. This is a nice quick read that will leave you feeling happy and refreshed. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
