Litfuse Review:The Journey Of Josephine Cain by:Nancy Moser

The Journey of Josephine Cain (American Tapestries)
About the Book:
 An East-coast socialite embarks on a journey to the Wild West, and her life will never be the same.

A setting populated by hundreds of common laborers, outlaws, and Indians is hardly the place for a wealthy general’s daughter from the nation’s capital. But Josephine Cain is determined to accompany her father as he oversees the day-to-day work involved in the greatest undertaking 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 West and the East; between her privileged upbringing and the dangers of a new frontier; between the pull of the suitable beau her parents chose for her 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 the love of her life.

My Review:
 Josephine has been in mourning since her brother died and feels it is time to get up and dust herself off. Her mother on the other hand feels differently about her not mourning for full year. Her father on the other hand agrees she should go out and have fun. So when Lewis Simmons proposes the idea of taking her to an opera, her father of course says yes.
  Lewis Simmons was happy to take Josephine Cain to the opera, bad thing is it wasn't his idea. Her father feels she's been kept up in the house to long and needs to get out more.So when they get to the opera, she is absorbed in the music. He thinks she is quite beautiful. He was only suppose to take her out but it seems he feels something more for her.
 When Josephine comes home from the opera, she can barely control her excitement but her father will soon be leaving and that needs her attention. But she doesn't want him to go, she would love to go with him. But she would also like to see where this thing with Lewis will end up.
