According to the author's note at the end of the book, it is based on the true story of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman's journey overland to Oregon in 1836. I enjoyed reading about the hardships encountered by the travelers, but the actual romance fell short for me. I found it repetitive and a bit annoying. The romance in Jody Hedlund's "For Love and Honor" was much more interesting with witty banter and humor. But an enjoyable, clean, well-written story nevertheless.
