Guest Review from Joni Truex
Train to Laramie by Andrew Roth is a wonderful story set in the early pioneer days when railroads were being built as fast as men could labor. The main female character comes alive through the author’s description. The main male lead character can easily be visualized by the descriptions provided. This story includes romance, hope, faith and growth for the characters. There is violence in this story just as violence occurred in the Wild West. The author did a nice job of including the violence without being overly graphic. My favorite part of this story, aside from the romance, was the deep faith the main characters shared. In the story Tess prays “Your will, Father, not mine. I wish only to do what you desire for me. You know my heart.” I recommend this book for fans of historical fiction and/or romance.
This book was provided through Celebrate Lit and the author for me to read. The opinions expressed are my own thoughts.

More from Andrew
The American West has always fascinated me with ruggedly beautiful landscapes and the indomitable spirit of the pioneers. When building the Transcontinental Railroad, nothing could stop the people from their goal. This innovation and tenacity has shaped our soul, our character as a nation. This deep sense of perseverance encourages me through the tough times we face today.
To our God and Creator, able to transform lives and redirect paths. Thank you, Savior.
