The Ruby Brooch: The Celtic Brooch, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A Sweeping Saga
As the sole survivor of the car crash that killed her parents, grief-stricken paramedic Kit MacKlenna is stunned to learn her life is built on lies. A legacy from her father includes a faded letter and a well-worn journal. The journal reveals she was abandoned as a baby 160 years ago. The only clues to her identity are a blood-splattered shawl, a locket with the portrait of a 19th century man, and a Celtic brooch with magical powers. Kit decides to continue her father's 25-year search for her identity and solve her birth parents' murders.
Scotsman Cullen Montgomery, a San Francisco-bound lawyer who resembles the ghost who has haunted Kit since childhood, helps her join a wagon train heading west. More dangerous than the river crossings, bad water, and disease encountered on the trail is Cullen's determination to expose her lies and uncover the source of her unusual knowledge and lifesaving powers.
Kit is convinced that if she can survive the perilous journey and Cullen's accusations, as well as thwart his attempts to seduce her, she might solve the mystery of her heritage and return home without leaving her heart on the other side of time.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Being from Australia, you don't tend to know a lot about American history and this book gave me a small insight.
I love Kit and she is the ideal strong female lead, whether it is the 21st or 18th century.
This book is a great read and can't recommend it enough. Now on to the rest of the series (again!)

The author obviously did her research on the trail, but in my opinion could have been more detailed in some of the events in the story. It felt quite flat and lacking in description, leaving it with a more two dimensional feel to it.
Having said that, from becoming bored at the beginning with the usual modern lady saves the occasion kind of scenarios, I did become more involved as it went along.
