Image of Blowing on Dandelions (Love Blossoms in Oregon)

In her sweet historical romance novel, Ferrell shows readers the struggles that women, especially widows with children, faced when they tried to make a life for themselves in the Oregon Territory in the 1800s. It was a hard life, and only the strong could make it.

Running a boardinghouse on her own was not what Katherine Galloway imagined for herself, but with the death of her husband, that is her reality now. Raising two daughters on her own is also overwhelming, but when her over-critical mother comes to live with her, it might be what pushes her over the edge. Micah Jacobs is a widower who just wants to live in peace, but things change when he meets Katherine. There are sparks between them, but Katherine does not believe she is worthy of his kindness.
