Book Info
About the book: When a socialite from the nation's capital embarks on a journey to the Wild West, her life is changed forever.

A setting populated by hundreds of laborers, outlaws, and Indians is hardly the place for a wealthy general's daughter. But Josephine Cain is determined to visit her father, who supervises the day-to-day work involved in the grandest ambition of post-Civil War America: the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Life with the railroad is far from the proper life Josephine is used to, and she faces deadly gunfights, harsh weather, and vigilante uprisings. She is torn between the West and the East; between her privileged upbringing and the challenges of a new frontier; between the pull of the suitable beau her parents approve of and an attraction to a rough but charming Irish railroad worker. But if Josephine is willing, she just might find a new life, a unique purpose . . . and true love.

My Review:
Nancy Moser's historical fiction novel, "The Journey of Josephine Cain," is An American Tapestry novel and Nancy does an excellent job of bringing history to life.  Josephine is the cherished daughter of General Cain, former lawyer, whom a year following the assignation of President Lincoln, is offered the position of overseeing the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Josephine has endured life through the years of war and also following the war with mourning for her brother and cousin; however she is ready to move forward with her life and finally have the life she has dreamed of - a life with a husband, her own home and children.  As Josephine determines to find adventure and hopefully her dream, she sets off for the West and faces a life much different from the comfortable life she has been used to. However, Josephine is being drawn  to this area and her new life and finds herself with many choices that will determine her future and may change her dreams.  I really enjoyed this book!  It started right out with a major historical event with Josephine right there to witness and right there I was hooked on the story, and felt myself drawn into Josephine's world.  The descriptions are so vivid that I could picture the theater, the Cain home, and the wild frontier.  This is such an exciting time period as it was a time of healing, and growth for the United States and Nancy does an excellent job of portraying this in her book and story of Josephine.
