I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
Amy Harmon is one of my favorites authors because she always writes epic romances. My favorite books of hers were The Law of Moses.
Where the Lost Wander is the journey of Naomi May and John Lowry. They meet traveling in a wagon train and they felt drawn to each other but for them, life in a wagon train was hard and difficult.
Put your energy into rising above the things you can’t change, Naomi. Keep your mind right. And everything will work out for the best.
John Lowry is a half Pawnee and a half white man, who felt that he doesn’t belong anywhere but Naomi May becomes his home and he feels that with her, he belongs. For him, Naomi becomes his everything and his family. For her, he will do anything. Naomi is a strong woman who fights for her family and the man she loves. Naomi is a fighter. John and Naomi are stronger together.
The pain. It’s worth it. The more you love, the more it hurts. But it’s worth it. It’s the only thing that is.
The love for each other gave them the strength to fight to be together and to build a life together. Where The Lost Wander is a provoking and real historical romance about survival, about hardships and tragedies, and love for family. It’s about strong people who travel for a better life for their families and for a new life. I like Where The Lost Wander and I recommend everyone who wants to read a historical romance with a touch of autobiography.
