I'm looking for a book, circa 1960- teen girl joins Mormons on Oregon Trail, falls in love with Mormon, they both leave?

its a fiction young adult book, a coming of age story about a young girl who joins a Mormon group going west on the Oregon Trail, she faces hardship, falls in love with a Mormon, examines the faith, rejects it and she and the Mormon boy end up leaving the group and the faith. Brigham Young shows up in the book at one point

Thanks for an interesting question! That early-60s publication date makes for a smallish universe to search, so while the plot doesn't seem to match up 100% I feel pretty confident that it's Richard Wormser's Battalion of Saints. We do not have that particular title in the Omaha Public Library collection, but you could certainly request it through inter-library loan. Please feel free to email back or call 402-444-4800 with questions.
