Their cheerful songs pleased Temperance Peabody as she drove the team at a fast trot along the trail that led to Walla Walla. The wind out of the north was still raw and chilling, and Temperance savored the rank smell of winter’s breakup of rotted earth about to come alive. Lifting her gaze, she took in the mountains.

She looked out the window and saw with satisfaction that there was only a thin sliver of a moon lock showed her that it was past ten o’clock, which meant she would get into town about eleven-exactly what she planned. Turning her attention to the chicken, she put it into a basket on top of a white covering and then put the smaller basket into a larger one. She added a jar full of potato salad and carefully stacked biscuits wrapped in napkins

In 1850, Temperance Peabody, age 32, is a plain yet beautiful woman who has yet to know the thrill of romantic love. Raised in the Oregon territory where her parents established a strict religious colony, she was never allowed to have a suitor but now longs to have a family of her own.

After her parents die and a cholera epidemic wracks the colony, Temperance feels called by God to take the surviving orphaned children back East to their extended families. But the only man available to accompany her on the dangerous journey is Thaddeus Brennan, a hard-edged drifter with good reasons of his own to get out of town.

Despite the mismatch of Temperance’s purity with Thad’s hot temper, heavy drinking, and distaste for kids, the intensities of their trek help the two find common ground, perhaps enough on which to build a lasting relationship. But life and love are unpredictable. And when another man and woman join the journey, and a shock awaits two of the orphans, this hearty story of faith and new desires duly follows.

I loved this book and as usual, Gilbert Morris does not disappoint. It is a wonderful historical story of our country's beginnings and kept me interested throughout. I loved the characters, plots, and outcomes. They all blended to make a very satisfying read. I got this book in good time from the sender again, I am very happy with Amazon's prices and availability. Thank you!

Temperance Peabody has the daunting responsibility of getting six orphaned kids to their relatives back East. Against his will, but indebted to Temperance, Thaddeus Brennan has agreed to be their guide. His hate for children and dislike of Temperance makes the arrangement less than ideal, but Temperance has no choice, and Thaddeus has reason himself to put space between him and the little town of Walla Walla, Oregon.

A MAN FOR TEMPERANCE is an enjoyable story. Though somewhat predictable, some amusing twists added to the pleasure of reading it. Thaddeus is far from hero status when he is introduced in the story. A hard man with a hot temper and an unhealthy drinking habit, Thaddeus¡¯ bristly ways takes some time to warm up to. Temperance, ever level-headed in the task before her, butts heads with Thaddeus but has to put up with his vices if she is going to see the kids safely home to their extended families. The characters of Rena, Belle, and Quaid, really added to the story. I especially enjoyed watching the transformation in Rena.

With its western setting and colorful characters, A MAN FOR TEMPERANCE has entertained me enough that I have decided to read SANTA FE WOMAN, the first book in the Wagon Wheel series by GILBERT MORRIS.
This was a very different reading experience for historical romance. The heroine is not the usual striking beauty,and the hero is a despicable drunken slob!
I enjoyed reading it however and it kept my interest throughout.Why I couldn't give it 5 stars,is that I felt totally disconnected and unconcerned with the hero until very close to the end when his change is so dramatic that it was just too unbelievable to me. The same with the orphan Rena. I believe I would have cared more about these two characters if the author would have given us some of their private thoughts,about why they were such nasty characters,and maybe had them feel some occasional remorse,but I never really liked or cared about either Thaddeus or Rena.We never really get to know them. It's like they are always talked about,but seldom speak themselves,and almost never do we get any of their private thoughts.

Otherwise,it was a good read.Temperance Peabody and the other characters were more likable,except Quaid a former friend of Thaddeus,but now rival for the attentions of Temperance. I didn't like or trust him either.
