Times are uncertain in the South, and life becomes fraught with danger for Pastor Lincoln Wright and his wife, Zipporah. Driven from their home, an opportunity to chaperone five Mail Order Brides to Independence, Oregon arises. They are happy to move, but could never have foreseen the challenges that they will face along the way.
Six months on the Oregon Trail are enough to challenge even the bravest of souls and Lincoln and Zippy aren’t spared. Their marriage is tested and their love and loyalty to each other comes into question.
Will their love stand the test of time or will it crumble under the weight of the trials they face along the way? Can they get to Independence before Christmas?
Pastor Lincoln, Zipporah, and the five hopeful brides discover that faith, hope, and the unchanging message of God’s redeeming love are enough to lead the way!
