The heart-warming story of how five totally unrelated individuals became a family in Wyoming Territory, 1873. Rancher Sam Gallagher advertises in a newspaper back east for a housekeeper. Being adventurous, Meg Wolverton (aka 'Miss Wolfie' by the homeless waifs she accompanies West on the Orphan Train) gladly accepts the position. The Orphan Train stops at every whistle-stop along the way, hopefully matching up these rambunctious orphans with suitable families. Alas, a few manage to slip through the cracks. To be specific, three children still need homes, as Meg discovers upon arriving in Cheyenne. On top of that, her new employer is late meeting the train. Will he show up? Will she lose her job and wind up destitute, with three unadoptable orphans to support? Or does God have a better plan?.show more

About Barbara Dan

First published in her teens, Barbara Dan has enjoyed a variety of life experiences, including working as an professional actress, model, night club comedienne, singer/dancer, comedy writer, puppeteer, theatrical producer in Hollywood, screenwriter, publicist, fund-raiser, real estate saleswoman, hands-on builder of houses, escrow officer, co-teacher of couples' communications workshops with her family therapist husband, as well as publisher, editor, and adjunct college professor. But aside from all that, her greatest accomplishment has been raising four awesome children with her beloved husband of 46 years. Besides degrees in Theatre Arts and Advanced Accounting, she earned her M.A. in Humanities (literature and history) from California State University in 1988. However, she feels that life experience is the most valuable tool any writer brings to his or her work. (A good sense of humor helps, too!) A member of Women Writing the West, Western Writers of America, Inc., and Romance Writers of America, Barbara is a voracious reader of history. She enjoys quilting, gardening, oil painting, tracking genealogies, and prowling around in old graveyards, museums, and archeological digs, doing research.show more
