Review: Where the Lost Wander by Amy Harmon



Amy Harmon


In this epic and haunting love story set on the Oregon Trail, a family and their unlikely protector find their way through peril, uncertainty, and loss.

The Overland Trail, 1853: Naomi May never expected to be widowed at twenty. Eager to leave her grief behind, she sets off with her family for a life out West. On the trail, she forms an instant connection with John Lowry, a half-Pawnee man straddling two worlds and a stranger in both.

But life in a wagon train is fraught with hardship, fear, and death. Even as John and Naomi are drawn to each other, the trials of the journey and their disparate pasts work to keep them apart. John’s heritage gains them safe passage through hostile territory only to come between them as they seek to build a life together.

When a horrific tragedy strikes, decimating Naomi’s family and separating her from John, the promises they made are all they have left. Ripped apart, they can’t turn back, they can’t go on, and they can’t let go. Both will have to make terrible sacrifices to find each other, save each other, and eventually…make peace with who they are.


APRIL 2020 – is when WtLW is releasing and I’m so excited.

I have a shelf dedicated to books that take place or mention my home state of OREGON!! And since this book is set on the Oregon Trail I couldn’t be happier.

When we hear the words – The Oregon Trail I’m sure most of us think of the computer game where everyone always seemed to die from dysentery. Here’s hoping these characters fair better.

John is living in 2 worlds: a white father and Pawnee mother. He was called 2-feet (Native American and caucasian). John never felt he belonged in either world.

Naomi and her family (her mother, father, and brothers) are headed out on the Oregon trail for more opportunities out west. John is the guide for their group plus the other families traveling with them. Things really get tense when Naomi and her baby brother are taken by a Native American tribe.

Just like The Oregon Trail game, there is a TON of hardship. Except in this version, a budding romance happens between Naomi and John.

I enjoyed this book especially the last half of the book.
RELEASE DATE: April 28, 2020 Signature
