After reaching Oregon by wagon with Jenny Calhoun, Caleb (Mac) McDougall must choose—return to the East or remain on the frontier. Mac’s passion for Jenny has grown, but abuse in her past numbs her to his feelings.
Mac starts east, then learns of the California gold strike and joins hordes of prospectors seeking wealth, independence, and adventure. Alone in Oregon, Jenny forges a new life but fears losing her home if neighbors learn she is not Mac’s wife.
Separately, Mac and Jenny confront violence, temptation, and heartache in a savage and abundant land. Their quests for happiness travel paths more tortuous than the Oregon Trail they conquered together.
NOW I'M FOUND is the sequel to the bestselling LEAD ME HOME: Hardship and Hope on the Oregon Trail. Theresa Hupp is also the author of award-winning essays, short stories, poetry, and a financial thriller written under a pseudonym.
"NOW I'M FOUND is an engaging companion to LEAD ME HOME. As in the first book, Theresa Hupp weaves a colorful story of the Western frontier . . . historically accurate and worthy of your time." Sally Jadlow, author of THE LATE SOONER series.
