Charlotte Logan, affectionately called Charlie, spent her adolescent years under the control of the Grey Nuns. Now, her free spirit needs to be set loose. When her confined surroundings challenge her sense of adventure, she uses the art of manipulation to join a small wagon train heading west to the Fraser River in search of gold.
Travelling across untamed land brings new
relationships and the discovery of her place in the world.
When adventure turns to danger, Charlie finds her source of strength in the middle of gunfights, kidnappers, and a battle for her relationship against the temptress called gold.
Freedom Reins, by E. M. Spencer, is set more than a hundred years ago, but its characters, well-formed and thought-out, seem as real as any person you could run into on the street in the modern era.

I loved this story. It was well written and left me hoping for a second book.
