Reader Review: Basically, this story talks about two couples...Tuckers and Lucas...Laura and Buck. Personally, I liked Laura and Buck's love story better. Overall, I was able to sit on my sofa and read the novel without feeling bored.
A writer whose books have appeared on the USA Today bestseller list as well as the New York Times extended list, Dorothy Garlock is renowned for her unique ability to convey the romance and reality of frontier America. Here she presents one of her most beloved stories, a tale of a young woman's westward journey, on which she'll meet both danger and love. She's a nineteen-year-old orphan without money or prospects. Yet Tucker Houston has spunk to spare. Determined to find a better life for herself and her best friend, who is blind, Tucker brazenly tells a few fibs to land a job as a schoolteacher out West . . . even if it means joining a wagon train filled with twenty mail-order brides. Leading them all is wagon master Lucas Steele, hard-headed, hard-muscled, and drawn to Tucker's no-nonsense gumption. The two will soon find out that love can't wait--especially when the perils of the trail make today all they have, and tomorrow a time that may never come for the dreams they share.

The Searching Hearts
Chapter OneTucker Houston stood in the drifting dust and listened to the jingle of the harness and the soft, cajoling voice of the teamster as he hitched fresh horses to the stage that had just deposited her here. Despite her present worries, the sounds brought back memories of her childhood. The weekly arrival of the stage in Fort Smith, Arkansas, had been an exciting event for the dozen or more children who lived on the farm, the "throwaway farm" as it was usually called.
Tucker reached out a hand and tugged on the calico bonnet tied beneath the chin of the girl standing beside her, tilting it forward so the fair young skin was shaded, Laura Foster stood patiently with her hand on Tucker's shoulder. Anything Tucker did, any decision Tucker made was all right with her. It always had been, ever since the day Tucker had found her clinging to the gate of the throwaway farm, too frightened to move, with tears rolling from her sightless eyes.
After a week of travel, the town of Fort Worth, Texas, had come as a surprise to Tucker. It was just there, rising abruptly out of the flat land. It was larger than she had expected it to be, considering its newness. The stage to Yuma started here, and the town had grown by leaps and bounds. Shops lined the rutted track: blacksmiths, wagon repair shops, mercantile stores, and saloons. All seemed to be doing a thriving business. A man on the stage had said there was even talk of making Fort Worth the county seat.
The departing driver climbed back onto the seat of the stagecoach, ignoring the girls because they were no longer his responsibility, and waved to the man standing beside the tired team of swea...

When I finished this book, I couldn't wait to see what else Dorothy Garlock had written. This book was a true western romance, pulling together all the elements one looks for in a romance story as well as a western.
Definitely a keeper!
