***** 4 stars, Loved it: The bonds of the women and the power of sisterhood in Westering Women makes this a powerful read.


Recommended readers:

  • If you like novels of women overcoming adversity
  • If you like a historical read that ties into real events
  • If you like strong female characters

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 5/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall


During the famous Gold Rush, two reverends decide to take 40 women from Chicago to California to find husbands. A woman escaping a past, Maggie has a  young daughter and a desperate need to get away from Chicago. Others find the 2,000 mile journey more  appealing than their life at home too.

Westering Women is a powerful story of women, many abused and some hunted, who become stronger together – even as they face the devastating Overland Trail. The bonds of the women and the power of sisterhood in Westering Women is touching to the point of tears, overcoming the heartbreak of loss and pride of making the journey West.

  1. Hi, Terra,

    Just finished reading A Quilt for Christmas, and read The Last Midwife a couple of months ago. Really like her – thanks for the heads up about the book!
