About the Book
Adventure is in her blood, so when wealthy eighteen-year-old Rachel Hamilton’s treasure-hunting father disappears in the wilderness of British Columbia, she considers only one course of action: she will embark on a quest to find him. But for a well-bred woman with little understanding of the world beyond her upper-class existence, the harsh realities of the trail quickly become apparent. Woefully unprepared for the hardships of crossing a wild and unsettled continent, Rachel is hungry, lost, and distraught when handsome frontiersman Peter finds her in the middle of nowhere. Taking pity on the downtrodden young woman, Peter promises to escort her to the safety of civilization. Little does he realize he’s taking on a naïve and foolishly brave girl who will test the limits of his patience. But he also discovers the same naïve girl will blossom into a strong, competent, and captivating woman as they undertake an epic journey that will forever alter both their lives.

About the Author
Kristen Garner McKendry began writing in her teens, and her work has been published in both Canada and the U.S. She received a Mississauga Arts Council MARTY Award in Established Literacy Arts in 2012, and her book Garden Plot was nominated in 2011 for a Whitney Award for excellence in LDS literature.
Kristen received a bachelor’s degree in linguistics from Brigham Young University and has always been a voracious reader. She has a strong interest in urban agriculture and environmental issues. She enjoys playing the bagpipes, learning obscure languages, growing wheat in the backyard, and making cheese. A native of Utah and mother of three, she now resides with her family in Canada. The idea for this story (Heart’s Journey) came while she was reading about adventures in the Yukon and British Columbia and wishing she could join them.
Author Kristen McKendry has written an inspiring and touching novel in her latest release, Heart’s Journey. Full adventure, mishaps, and romance, readers will fall in love with this well-written story, as well as the delightfully-crafted characters as they trek across the country in the wilderness of British Columbia. Not only will this novel touch the heart of its readers, but will leave them longing for an exciting adventure of their own. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy both adventure and romance.
