Cornelia Rose—armed with her midwifery training, as well as literature and history knowledge, thanks to older brothers’ education and books—embraces the opportunities that life in the metropolis of New York provides.

In love and happily married to Obadiah Wright, her life is a fairytale of abundance, but it takes an unexpected turn with Obadiah’s decision to heed the call of the West. As his wife, she has no choice but to leave her home, family, and the comforts of civilization, and join him in accepting his opportunity to become circuit judge in Utah Territory. In spite of her endless hours of research, nothing prepares Cornelia for the arduous walk from the packet boat on the Erie Canal toward the Wild West.

EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a journey back in time to the 1800s, with the second book in the award-winning "Journey of Cornelia Rose" series. From New York society and the West Point Military Academy, to the Old West pioneering spirit, one woman seeks fulfillment in her life.
