Publisher's Summary

“Luke” Hamilton has always been sure she’d never marry. She accepted that she would spend her life alone when she chose to live her life disguised as a man.

After working in a brothel for three years, Nora Macauley has lost all illusions about love. She no longer hopes for a man who will sweep her off her feet and take her away to begin a new, respectable life.

But now, they find themselves married and on the way to Oregon in a covered wagon, with 2,000 miles ahead of them.

Excellent!

WOW! I loved the audio edition of Backwards to Oregon. I had already read the book. The audio is a great compliment to the book and really adds to the story. Hayden Bishop does an excellent job with the narration.

Backwards to Oregon

This is one of my favorite books I love a story told in the past for the LGBT community it's hard to find books that would take you into the past Sarah Waters does a good job of it but her books are not of the United States so it was nice to hear a story about the migration that my ancestors took and what it might have been like if someone like me was to have traveling that lonely road back then thank you for writing this book Jae you are a Great author. ps. Hayden Bishop was the perfect voice for this book ☺

Fantastic

I loved this one. The story was great. The characters were funny and engaging. I never experienced many dull moments throughout this book, I was pretty much sucked in the whole time. You're just waiting for the secrets to come out! I loved Luke. Such a great character. I would totally read a series like this, each with their own "cowboy" twist lol.

Anyways, I would recommend. The narrator was good. The voices were different and consistent. The kids voices were great lol.
I think even if you're not into "historical" type romances, this one is still a great read. So try it!

Couldn't stop

From the first word spoken to the last I could not stop listening, I was hooked. I felt all of Luke's insecurities and her determination to do the honorable thing. Nora's determination to give her daughter the best life she could, doing whatever she had to do. The slow way the two of them move from acquaintances to married, friends to lovers. Learning about each other along the way. How much love there is between Luke and Amy, how much concern Luke has for the baby on the way. How the love grows between Luke and Nora. You just know that Luke loves this family that she has made for herself, and she is willing to do anything to protect her family. I really hope I don't have to wait forever for the sequel to this great book.

Great book!

Loved it! I Loved the story and the characters. It was longer than I'm used to, but it kept me interested and waiting for what's going to happen from the beginning. The narrator did an amazing job.

P.S. I think the narrator's voice is kind of amazing.

Most enjoyable book on Audible so far!!

This is the first of this Author and Narrator but will certainly not be the last!! The story was extremely enjoyable, storyline progressed at a realistic pace, great book about questioning gender and gendered roles in society!!!

Enthralling Story

I really loved this book. Its intriguing story is original and confronts many ideas about gender identity, society, love, and parenting. Beautifully read by Hayden Bishop, her performance captures each characters personality so dialogue is easy to follow. The historical Oregon Trail setting was refreshing for me and I immensely enjoyed the setting and would Google landmarks the characters passed, feeling like I was on the journey with them.

It’s hard to get a better story

Luke and Nora’s story is a long slow burn romance. With everything a great western movie would have including the villains and the heroes. I own this in paperback, ebook and audio. Worth every penny.

Wonderful!

This is a compelling story which draws you into another world. I’m only sorry that I’ve finished it. Jae’s character development is always excellent and her longer novels show this even more. The narration does the story justice. Don’t miss out!
