Item description for Distant Dawn (Westward Dreams V4) by Jane Peart...

Tricked out of money by a con man while journeying West, Sunny Lyndall and her younger brother take temporary jobs with the Pony Express. But circumstances soon compel Sunny to leave the safety of her position as station manager for her brother's grueling, dangerous route as a rider.

Publishers Description

Following the death of their parents, twenty-four-year-old Sunniva Lyndall and her younger brother, Tracy, leave the comforts and safety of their Ohio Valley home to travel west to California, With excitement, determination, and the money they received from the sale of the family farm, they head for Missouri and the wagon train that will take them west. But Sunny and her brother quickly learn the ways of the West the hard way when a con-man swindles them out of their money. Without means to buy supplies, California seems out of the question. But being stuck in Missouri is not what Sunny had planned for their future. Employment with the Pony Express seems to be the only available option. With Tracy as express rider and Sunny as station manager, it looks like they will soon earn enough to resume their journey. But unplanned adventure in the saddle of the Express awaits Sunny with the greatest challenge of her young life. Will her strong spirit be enough to see her through -- or is the happiness that California promised a dream that will never be fulfilled?

Reviews - What do customers think about Distant Dawn (Westward Dreams V4)?

A Distant Third  May 29, 2004
Jane Peart's books are ideal for curling up with in a knitted coverlet and a cup of tea. I've also found them great for reading aloud to the elderly.

Of course, sex and violence are never troublesome, and a current of quiet Christian faith underlies every story. The heroines turn to the Bible at a crisis, but the books are never preachy.

These novels are engaging for several reasons: (1) The heroine is characterized immediately, without lots of history and detail, so the audience can sympathize and identify with her right away. (2) The action of the plot begins so quickly that an audience more interested in action and romance than in character is also captured without delay. (3) Generally, the swift opening is fulfilled by an equally swift progress so that Peart's books, like any good page-turners, can provide hours of uninterrupted entertainment.

A Distant Dawn is fourth in the Westward Dreams series and not nearly so good as the others. There is the usual conflict between one love interest with impeccable clothes and manners and another with rough ways--but the attraction to either one isn't very strong in this novel. The story drags, and the most exciting scene doesn't happen until chapter 22 of the 23-chapter book. The heroine's character is never fully developed, and her negative attitude persists for too long throughout the story. One 98-year-old listener called her "hateful"!

Jane Peart's Westward Dreams series captivates the reader with spirited heroines who find adventure, challenge and possible love in a fascinating (and rather historically accurate) time of U.S. history. To enjoy them at their best, however, you should start with another title, perhaps Promise of the Valley. Others in the series include Runaway Heart, Where Tomorrow Waits and Undaunted Sprirt.
