Pack up and leave her home? Never see the broad Hudson River, which flows both ways past her sitting room window, again? Eschew the glories of New York City and the wonders of the 1850s modern technology, and head out to unknown territory in the Wild West?
Cornelia Rose—armed with her midwifery training, as well as literature and history knowledge, thanks to older brothers’ education and books—embraces the opportunities that life in the metropolis of New York provides.
In love and happily married to Obadiah Wright, her life is a fairytale of abundance. Surrounded by her family, the couple establishes a home and enjoys the entertainment, society, and technological marvels that make life in the 1850s so easy. Adventure finds her, whether she is touring New York City’s first World’s Fair, or a passenger on a disastrous steamboat ride.
Her life takes an unexpected turn with Obadiah’s decision to heed the call of the West. As his wife, she has no choice but to leave her home, family, and the comforts of civilization, and join him in accepting his opportunity to become circuit judge in Utah Territory. In spite of her endless hours of research, nothing prepares Cornelia for the arduous walk from the packet boat on the Erie Canal toward the Wild West.
