Title: Enid: Prairie Roses Collection - Book 40

Author: Nancy Fraser

Genre: American Historical Romance


Book Blurb:


With Fort Bridger scheduled to be decommissioned, Enid Hughes has a choice she must make. Her parents have sold the merchandise from their mercantile and are heading back east. She can go with them, or she can accept the opportunity to escort a perfect stranger across the Oregon Trail.

Trained as a clockmaker, Simon Grainger is on his way to take over his late uncle’s thriving shop. He hires a driver to accompany him, but the man up and quits when they arrive at Fort Bridger. Simon knows he can’t make the remainder of the trip alone, and his only recourse seems to be a feisty young woman who’s willing to show him the way.

Can this unlikely relationship blossom into something more? Or will Simon’s personal challenges scare yet another helper away?


My Review:


With the closing of the local fort, Enid braves the wilderness on the Oregon Trail, not realizing love is right around the corner. A delightful Oregon Trail historical romance that’ll sweep you away. Enid is a historical romance with immersive narration, a rugged setting, and characters in need of each other. With a blind hero and an independent woman working together to make it west across the Oregon Trail, I was transported to another era where faith and hard work go hand-in-hand.


Let’s talk about the characters. I connected with both Enid and Simon. Their plights are easy to relate to and my heart went out to them. What impresses me the most about these characters is their perseverance. Life is hard during this era. How this couple deals with a stark frontier and strife inspires me.


The descriptive narration is impressive. Like many historical romance authors, Nancy Fraser plunges the reader into the time period. The narration is emotional and emotive. The reader feels everything and can picture the scene clearly. There were times when I didn’t want to close the book because I was enjoying myself too much while reading.


If you enjoy sweet historical romance, you’re going to love Enid.
