Item description for Joelle's Secret (Wagon Wheel) by Gilbert Morris...

Pursued by a predatory stepfather after her mother dies, Joelle cuts her long hair and poses as a young man, but when she joins a spiritually frustrated treasure hunter on a wagon train to California, she has trouble concealing her identity.

Publishers Description

Popular novelist Gilbert Morris finds fresh romantic, history-based inspiration in "Joelle's Secret." This mid-1800s tale begins with seventeen-year-old Joelle Jones fending off unwelcome advances from her predatory stepfather just after her mother has died. When the man is declared Joelle's legal guardian, she knows he will have his way with her, so in desperation runs away.

Pursued by the stepfather who offers a reward for her return, Joelle cuts her long beautiful hair, poses as a young man, and finds work as a stablehand. She meets a spiritually frustrated treasure hunter who--believing Joelle to be a male--invites her to join a wagon train to gold-rich California. But hard living on the trail makes it harder for Joelle to conceal her identity. When her traveling companion learns the truth, matters of faith and friendship become tense until Joelle helps him realize that God can indeed do all things, and that some things--like true love--are worth even more than gold.

Reviews - What do customers think about Joelle's Secret?

Disappointed  Jan 26, 2009
The story had good potential, but it was so similar to the other two books of Morris' Wagon Wheel Series. Many of the characters, plot twists and details are almost identical to the previous two books. If I had not read the two previous books, it would have been a great read.
JOELLE'S SECRET  Dec 2, 2008
JOELLE'S SECRET by Gilbert Morris is the third book in his Wagon Wheel Series. And though some of the plot seemed strangely familiar, it kept my interest none the less.
At the passing of her mother, Joelle Mitchell is desperate to get away from the disturbing advances and evil threats her step-father continues to taunt her with. When she feels as if she can't wait any longer, she leaves Tennessee behind and finds herself in Arkansas. When she is confronted with a WANTED sign bearing her name and likeness, she disguises herself as a boy. With her beautiful hair chopped off and wearing baggy clothes, she changes her name to Joe Jones and finds work as a stable hand.
When Joelle meets up with Owen Majors -a man down on his luck- she nurses him back to health and decides to head west with him on a wagon train bound for California. Being out on the open range makes it difficult for Joelle to hide her identity. Hiding her growing feelings for Owen proves to be difficult as well.
I enjoyed JOELLE'S SECRET, but couldn't help but feel as if I'd read it before. Similarities to other historical's I've read were prevalent, and at times I found myself checking the copyright page thinking I had read the book at an earlier time and this was just a rerelease. I realized that some of the story overlapped with the other books in the series, but there was something about this specific storyline that felt like déjà vu. Even with all that, JOELLE'S SECRET was a quality story and a quick read.
