Description

“Luke” Hamilton has always been sure she’d never marry. She accepted that she would spend her life alone when she chose to live her life disguised as a man.

After working in a brothel for three years, Nora Macauley has lost all illusions about love. She no longer hopes for a man who will sweep her off her feet and take her away to begin a new, respectable life.

But now, they find themselves married and on the way to Oregon in a covered wagon, with 2,000 miles ahead of them.

Again and again

I’m not ashamed to say I have read or listened to a lot of lesbian romantic fiction. This is one of the best. The story is fantastic and the narrator does such a fantastic job bringing the characters to life. When I don’t know what to read next, I always know I can come back to this book and its sequel.

Historical Homerun

Backwards to Oregon is one of my very favourite novels. The slow-burn historical romance, from business partners, to friends, to lovers, is fascinating and exquisite, as is the frontier landscape where it takes place. I greatly appreciate how the author stayed true to beliefs at that time in history, regarding sexuality and the indigenous peoples, without making it so invasive that it would offend what we know today. It's a difficult line to walk, but Jae does it with beautiful skill.

Amazing!!!

I loved the book. I loved the author. Now, I love this Narrator (capitol N).

One teeny tinytiny issue is that Luke said Nora's lines twice. That's it. I love it all.

Backwards to Oregon

This is one of my favorite books I love a story told in the past for the LGBT community it's hard to find books that would take you into the past Sarah Waters does a good job of it but her books are not of the United States so it was nice to hear a story about the migration that my ancestors took and what it might have been like if someone like me was to have traveling that lonely road back then thank you for writing this book Jae you are a Great author. ps. Hayden Bishop was the perfect voice for this book ☺

Excellent!

WOW! I loved the audio edition of Backwards to Oregon. I had already read the book. The audio is a great compliment to the book and really adds to the story. Hayden Bishop does an excellent job with the narration.

Fantastic

I loved this one. The story was great. The characters were funny and engaging. I never experienced many dull moments throughout this book, I was pretty much sucked in the whole time. You're just waiting for the secrets to come out! I loved Luke. Such a great character. I would totally read a series like this, each with their own "cowboy" twist lol.

Anyways, I would recommend. The narrator was good. The voices were different and consistent. The kids voices were great lol.
I think even if you're not into "historical" type romances, this one is still a great read. So try it!

Couldn't stop

From the first word spoken to the last I could not stop listening, I was hooked. I felt all of Luke's insecurities and her determination to do the honorable thing. Nora's determination to give her daughter the best life she could, doing whatever she had to do. The slow way the two of them move from acquaintances to married, friends to lovers. Learning about each other along the way. How much love there is between Luke and Amy, how much concern Luke has for the baby on the way. How the love grows between Luke and Nora. You just know that Luke loves this family that she has made for herself, and she is willing to do anything to protect her family. I really hope I don't have to wait forever for the sequel to this great book.

Great book!

Loved it! I Loved the story and the characters. It was longer than I'm used to, but it kept me interested and waiting for what's going to happen from the beginning. The narrator did an amazing job.

P.S. I think the narrator's voice is kind of amazing.

An absolutely terrific listen!

HOW did it take me this long to experience this book?!? I'm still making my way through Jae's published works and after 11 of them so far, I have to say that this is in my top 2 of hers (the other being Perfect Rhythm) and way up there on my all-time favorites list. The painstaking research that went into this was apparent and I was completely riveted by the story. The detail was so amazing that it felt like I was riding right along with their wagon train from Independence, Missouri to Oregon. It was fascinating, it was impressive, it was exciting, it was frightening and at times utterly beautiful. I am a die-hard romantic and Jae has written two of the most beautiful love scenes I've ever read. One in this book, and one in Perfect Rhythm. The consent, communication and tenderness in these scenes are what take them from merely sex to the most intimate of lovemaking. This one had me clutching my chest. I have not read the physical book yet, but the audio version was beautifully narrated by Hayden Bishop. She really brought the story to life - and it wasn't easy to do as there were three main characters (one of them being a three year old child) and a variety of secondary characters. Her tone was just perfect for this work. This is one of those books where you fall in love with the characters and story so much, you just don't want to let them go. I am so thankful there are short stories and a sequel to this, so I don't have to say goodbye just yet! I just couldn't be more impressed by what Jae did here. Incredible book. If I could give this more than five stars, I absolutely would.

Jae's best

This book made me a Jae fan. She said it was her first book and, in my opinion, it is also her best. The 15 hours didn't feel that long, and by the end of the story, I wanted still another chapter on the lives of these pioneering women. I hope Jae makes an audiobook of the sequel.
