Review: The Christmas Prayer by Wanda E. Brunstetter

Book Blurb:
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?


Review:  The Christmas Prayer is an amazing work of fiction by Wanda E. Brunstetter.  Wanda weaves together a piece of historical fiction unlike any other. I loved traveling along with the the wagons on their journey to California. This story is packed with lots of happens and unexpected events. I loved this story. I received a complementary copy of this book. This review is my honest opinion. 4 stars.
