Dreams in Deadwood

(2 customer reviews)


He has a vice as bad as her father.

Jennie Arnsby wants nothing more than to turn around and go home. Her family is on their way to Deadwood, SD, when Aiden finds his way to their small wagon train. His teasing and banter leave her wanting to toss him out the back and in the dust. When they are separated outside the city, she is left wondering if she’ll ever see him again.

Aiden Bradly wants to find his gold and return home. Nothing more. He can’t afford to get tangled with a woman. He’s doing just that until he meets the feisty Jennie. She gets him thinking about his past and forgiveness, but what’s more important, his past or his new future?

Aiden will either redeem his past or claim a treasure greater than he could ever imagine, but he must choose one.

    This is a wonderful surprise, not the typical historical I am used to. So many are the woman arriving as a mail order bride and fall for the prospective husband. Kari Trumbo gives this time period a little twist by having a family of sisters relocating to Deadwood, South Dakota and on the way meet Aidan, a young man also heading towards Deadwood in search of gold. Little does Aidan know, that Jennie, one of the girls will be his nugget! Guilt drags Aidan home to Kansas, leaving Jennie behind with her sisters. Will their love be enough to bring him back? I have to say, although it’s a sweet romance, there are a few scenes that are so romantic, it’s heartwarming. It will be fun to get to know the other 6 brides in this series!

    Meghan Kelly truly brings this story to life. Her portrayal of each character is wonderful, each with a distinctive voice and definite personality. Her voicing of Jennie for me is particularly good, as you can hear Jennie’s hesitation, indecision and love all at war with just the sound of Meghan’s voice. It’s a pleasure to listen to it.

    This started it all. Well the Arnsby’s going to Deadwood, SD anyway! Jennie Arnsby was about to turn eighteen and she was stuck on a wagon train going to SD. All she wanted to do was stay in Cutter’s Creek with her mother, but she was told she had to go with her sisters. Her older sister Ruby and her husband Beau pretty much lead everyone and Beau had deemed himself their protector, taking the place of a father figure (of course their real father was another matter).
    Along the way they ran into a man who had lost his horse when he died and he ended up hitching a ride with them because he through Deadwood was as good as any! Aidan just wanted to find gold, or that is how it started out.
    This is a journey of finding out how you can make the best of the life you are given and just have to do what is right and clear your conscience. Aidan was a wounded soul but he took a journey to find his heart.
    Meghan Kelly is one of the best narrators and brought this story alive! I love this family and an anxious to read/listen to them all. Thank you Kari Trumbo for this inspiring series!
