Short Synopsis
From Susan Denning, a memorable work of historical fiction that will make you believe that no matter how many challenges fate sends your way, the human spirit can triumph.

Full Synopsis
In post–Civil War New York City, sixteen-year-old Aislynn Denehy cannot find a job, she has no place to live and no family to help her. Some might think this is a problem; Aislynn believes it is an opportunity.

No formulaic romance, this well-researched love story depicts life as it truly was for the thousands of women who went west reaching for a new life. Aislynn's journey begins in a New York City tenement and leads her across the frontier to a Utah mining camp where she must cope with the three very different men in her life: smart, solicitous Tim; good-natured, good-guy Johnny; and the intense but intriguing Liam Moran. Life in the roughshod camp brings small joys and devastating losses.

Susan Denning's engaging debut novel races through authentic experiences involving historical events until it erupts in an unexpected ending.

"Far Away Home is an engaging, memorable love story." ---Amy Goodman, author of Breaking the Sound Barrier

"A page turner of adventure, romance and strong characters who stand up for themselves and their friends despite the costs." ---Geoff Woodland, author of Triangle Trade

"I listened to this in audiobook and found the narrator, Tavia Gilbert, to be very pleasant to listen to. She handled the characters well and I enjoyed her interpretation of Aislynn."---Good Reads
