Where Wildflowers Bloom by Ann Shorey
From the book's back cover
The Civil War stole a father and brother from Faith Lindberg--as well as Royal Baxter, the man she wanted to marry. With only her grandfather left, she dreams of leaving Noble Springs, Missouri,and traveling west to Oregon to start a new life, sway from the memories that haunt her. But first she much convince her grandfather to sell the family's mercantile and leave a town their family has called home for generations. When Royal Baxter suddenly returns, Faith allows herself to hope that she and Royal will finally wed. But does he truly love her? Or will another man claim her heart?
Shorey gives us strong and memorable characters. As her plot unfolds she keeps putting obstacles in the way of Faith Lindberg’s dream to go west to Oregon and leave her sad memories of the Civil War behind. This story takes one twist after another and kept me turning pages. Not until the last pages does Faith resolve her dream of Oregon.
