Book Review: Where the Trail Ends
Alexander takes them to Fort Vancouver, where the two recover and become immersed in their new lives at the Fort. Samantha is asked to teach the children that live there, and Micah finds a mentor in Alexander. And while Alexander is engaged to be married to Lady Judith of England, he finds himself captured by Samantha's strength and beauty, and Samantha finds herself falling in love him. But when his betrothed arrives in the territory unexpectedly, Alex finds himself torn between his commitment to Judith and his growing affection for Samantha. And when Micah disappears, will tragedy destroy Samantha and Alex forever?
A beautifully written work by author Melanie Dobson, Where the Trail Ends provides an exciting look into the journey that many Americans made to Oregon County in 1800's. Dobson's characters are rich and well-developed. You'll be inspired by Samantha, a strong and passionate heroine, and if you're a female reader, you're likely to develop a deep affection for the courageous and dedicated Alex. This is a fantastic tale that will stay with you after you've finished the last page; you may even want to pick it up to begin reading it again.
