Publisher's Summary

In 1899 two women from very different backgrounds are about to embark on a journey together - one that will take them from the Old World to the New, from the 19th century into the 20th, and from the comfort and familiarity of England to the rigors of Western Canada, where challenges await at every turn. 

The journey begins simply for Kicker Stuart when she leaves her home village to take employment as hostler and farrier at Grindleshire Academy for Young Ladies. But when Kicker falls in love with a teacher, Madelyn Bristow, it radically alters the course of her tranquil life. 

Together, the lovers flee the brutality of Madelyn's father and the prejudices of upper crust England in search of freedom to live, and love, as they choose. A journey as much of the heart and soul as of the body, it will find the lovers struggling against the expectations of gender, the oppression of class, and even, at times, each other.

What they find at the end of their journey is not a new Eden, but a land of hope and opportunity that offers them the chance to live out their most cherished dream - a life together.

Contains mature themes.

The Journey!

I loved the journey this took me on. The narrator was excellent. The story itself was great. This author has yet to disappoint and the choices of narrator to bring the stories to life superb. The book is long but so worth while . The cast of characters are so well done. If you chose to expand further on the book I would not be upset.

Strange narration spoiled this good story!

Good story... very strange narration. Weird accents which became a bit irritating, but a a good storyline, and would have been a good listen. think this would have been a brilliant book but the narration changed the tone too much.
