Mrs. Horne is an adventure/romance that takes place during the mid 1800s. It is the story of a well-bred young woman who leaves the comfort and familiarity of her patrician lifestyle in Boston to travel as a new bride with her husband to claim a homestead in the Oregon territory. Her naïve expectations of a romantic adventure are soon shattered when she and her husband are separated and she must survive the winter alone in the elements. Her journey then takes her through an upheaval of emotions as she finds succor with a Mormon family in Salt Lake City and eventually discovers a forbidden love. As she settles into her new surroundings and finally finds happiness again, she must make the most difficult decision of her life when the husband whom she presumed to be dead returns. This is a powerful story of the human will to survive against overwhelming odds. It is a story of human relationships interwoven with historical facts that establish a realistic setting for this fictional novel. The market for this book will be women eighteen and older, but I have found that the men who have read it also expressed very favorable reviews.
