Fans of AMC's Hell on Wheels are waiting on pins and needles about the questionable fourth season, until then they can sink their teeth in the recently released The Journey of Josephine Cain by Nancy Moser. The plot involves an unmarried socialite, Josephine Cain leaving Washington D.C. to work side-by-side with her general father, who is supervising the day-to-day building of the Transcontinental Railroad.

Life on the great frontier isn't exactly what Josephine thought it would be like, as she is not use to the harsh weather, deadly gunfights and other dangers of the west. Things take an unexpected turn when she falls in love with an Irish railroad worker, Hudson Maguire.

Hudson works along side his brother Raleigh, who both is saving money to send home to their family. He didn't expect to fall in love with a well-educated proper woman, Josephine.

Nancy Moser is a great writer of historical fiction and her talents really do shine in The Journey of Josephine Cain, which is part of the An American Tapestry series. Set in the post-Civil Wars days where companies are in a race to build the railroads, similar to a theme on AMC's Hell on Wheels. The main character Josephine Cain is a fish-out-of-water, who happens to find true love. The plot may sound a bit cliché, but it works well in this tale. Overall, I enjoyed reading The Journey of Josephine Cain and I recommend it to all readers.
