    DESTINY MAKES IS AWAKEN OUR HEARTS & MINDS! 4 STARS for this Box set of 3 stories that are all Historical Western Romances, that relate to each other based on a wonderful exciting storyline of a Wagon train traveling across the entire U.S. to Oregon. This beautiful story begins with a main family of this wagon train, The Thompsons who Mr Thompson, has decided to uproot his family of a wife, 3 daughters,- Eva, Jo & Becky (twins) & a younger son Stephen to go on the Oregon Trail. (All of the 4 wome DESTINY MAKES IS AWAKEN OUR HEARTS & MINDS! 4 STARS for this Box set of 3 stories that are all Historical Western Romances, that relate to each other based on a wonderful exciting storyline of a Wagon train traveling across the entire U.S. to Oregon. This beautiful story begins with a main family of this wagon train, The Thompsons who Mr Thompson, has decided to uproot his family of a wife, 3 daughters,- Eva, Jo & Becky (twins) & a younger son Stephen to go on the Oregon Trail. (All of the 4 women are upset about going) In each of the books we have 1 of the girls highlighted with her love for a man that their Pa hasn't approved of yet because he doesn't know them, so tricky. All 3 girls are different from each other and they each have skills the others don't and don't care about. Then the men that Destiny has chosen for the Thompson girls are all fine men but 3 different men in age, raising, prior lifestyle that molded them, and personality wise. It is great fun watching as Becky tempts her man, sorrowful & a bit of frustration (and for me anger) while Eva both loves up but begs him to wait before talking to Pa, and then smiles thinking yay for the nieces of Jo's man or those two shy beings might not ever speak! Every bit of romance is a wondrous thing but just a side issue to the wagons having to travel; we learn how the girls arms hurt driving the oxen, fears of crossing rivers and right up to why the wagon master has all the wagons in the train drive over the grave of a loved one they had just buried. The wagon train comes in contact with the different Indians, each with their own feelings about the whites plus prejudice on the train. There is mystery, secrets from the past, heartbreak and enemies from the past and new ones to keep a reader enticed to keep turning the pages. Traveling close together with occasional hardships/troubles usually breaks down barriers that highlight the true innerself of any individual, also shows some that bonding together as a group is what is needed to get through to Oregon. It is awkward to read and feel the hostility from the selfish and prejudice but you have no doubt that this is only a story of fiction somewhere in the past the awfulness & selfish behavior has indeed occurred. Great read that will keep your attention and leave you wanting more. My only problem was with Eva, she kept putting poor loving hard working and suffering David from talking to her Pa. I really never felt any good reasons for this, that other guy was unlocked and a bully but they didn't speak up because they thought Eva was going to marry him. WARNING: 17 & Up. SEXUAL CONTENT: KISSING

    This is a set of 3 books put into one and it starts the series. If you want to read what the books are about, read the blurb above the reviews. This book is about how the heroine's father in all 3 books, gets the idea for going to Oregon and the promises made. Each of the stories follows one of his daughter's at a time. The first book, Oregon Bound, center's on his oldest daughter. This was an interesting concept as I could imagine many girls were like this prior to setting out.

This book is about how the heroine's father in all 3 books, gets the idea for going to Oregon and the promises made. Each of the stories follows one of his daughter's at a time. The first book, Oregon Bound, center's on his oldest daughter. This was an interesting concept as I could imagine many girls were like this prior to setting out. I bet some did what this heroine did and talked her hero into coming along but I can also imagine there were others who left them behind. Remember back then by the time girls hit late teens they were usually already married and having kids. The characters were thought out and you could relate to them. Its a great start to the story. The Second book, Oregon Dreams, center's on the second oldest daughter. She's the more capable one with all the life skills. She's had a crush on one of the men since starting out. However, when one of the men, our hero, need her help with his children as he can't do everything on while on their way, he asks for her help from our heroine. He's been attracted to her since the start, but is trying to do things very proper. However, when she wants to be a teacher, like him, will this be the start of the end for them? The plot was very good and it was very of this time period. I liked how feisty the heroine was but was a bit annoyed at how shy and timid the hero was. I actually felt more for the hero in this one rather than the heroine. The Third book, Oregon Destiny, is on the father's last, and youngest, daughter. This daughter, our heroine, has had a crush on the man, our hero, who's responsible for the whole wagon train. We learn more about why the hero is like he is and roll our eyes at the heroine. While this plot was thought out, the amount of back and forth from these two got on our nerves. This one also deals with Indian's which would have been common for back then. While the story was ok, the characters got on your nerves. I mainly finished the book because I wanted to see how the other sisters were going to be when they actually got to Oregon. Overall, the story line was great and so were the characters. I was let down by the last book mainly as it seemed like it was more thrown together and the characters were more annoying than the others. Overall, not bad.

    Good story, but needs better editing This trilogy is about the Thompson sisters as they travel to Oregon Territory. It is an exciting read but several times I had to put it down in frustration as I couldn't figure out who said what. It was like someone over edited and did not read the final version. Even the pronouns were mixed up! Loved the adventure and the fact that it was a clean romance, just please fix the grammar.

    Good story This is the story of an Irish family with three daughters traveling on the Oregon Trail. They meet different people in their wagon train and have different experiences. It is well written but could use better editing. There are many places where the word in the story is not quite right and you're left to guess what should be there? But as I said, the storytelling is good and I will probably re read it again in the future. Good story This is the story of an Irish family with three daughters traveling on the Oregon Trail.

    Trail of Hearts Wins Hearts. This series won me over from the start. I loved the three sister and their individual stories that tyned together through out all the books. Having been raised as one of three sisters, I appreciated the way they worked together and conflicted at the same time.

    Wonderfully Written I liked this story very much. I laughed and cried. The innocence of men and women of that age was a refreshing delight. The character really came to life for me. They were facinating as any character should be bit they were naturally engaging. Gteat job. I would recommend the book to anyone. Best wishes from one writer to another.

    Exciting Read! Rachel Wesson has become a favorite author. She writes with warmth and humor, drawing you into the story line. A number of characters in this box set but she weaves a great storyline community coming together. Action packed, romance, loss of life, New birth, orphans. And it all fit together like perfect pieces of a puzzle fitting together!

    This is three stories about the Thompson daughters on the trip to Oregon. Each daughter finds a man to love on this arduous trip. Each book in the series is better than the last book and gives a good description of the trip. An enjoyable series.

    Wonderful What a wonderful set of stories. The Oregon Trail books are so good. I felt like I was part of the family. I like the way the books just ran together. It was like one big story.

    These three novels were not bad as Oregon Trail Romance stories are what they are, and I prefer a bit more realistic circumstances in novels about the trail. Yes there were tragedies, but it just didn't seem all to realistic sometimes.
