Publisher's Summary

It's 1895 in North Carolina, and in some way, Kit Pridgeon is a girl like any other from Fish Town. She's had a bit of schooling, and now she works at the local cannery. Her friend Letty dreams of marriage and a family of her own. Kit could choose that life, but she wants more.   

But it's 1895 in North Carolina, and her options are limited.   

In the newspaper, she sees an advertisement calling for young women to go and work for the Harvey Company - a growing chain of restaurants that serves hungry railway passengers traveling to the untamed West. But the interview is miles away in Raleigh...does she dare? Will she leave her family and the life she knows and risk everything for independence and adventure?  

Yes, she will! 

But it's not easy. Leaving home is only the first of many challenges for Kit, from facing her own doubts to proving herself and standing up to the judgment of others - including her closest new friend. With hard work and an instinctive knowledge of how to bring out the best in others, Kit progresses in her career, until she gets a message from home.  

Racing back across the country to the bedside of a loved one, Kit begins to question what will make her happy. When it looks like love will be a better choice, Kit is tempted to leave her life out West behind. 

Are fate, friendship, determination, and good advice enough to keep Kit on the right path? Can she have a successful career and also the love and respect of a good man? Is there a man out there who is strong enough to value her and give her wild heart a home?   

Download this audiobook to learn Kit's fate and discover the famous Harvey Girls, whose hard work and courage helped build a restaurant empire like no other.

Not a romance

I loved this book. I usually listen to romance novels but this really wasn't that. This is a story of a young woman who ventured out to be independent in a time that just wasn't done. She had obstacles and overcame them.
