Yearning to escape her stifling, authoritarian upbringing, ladylike New Englander Clementine Kennicutt elopes with cowboy Gus McQueen to Montana, where she comes face to face with the harsh realities of frontier life

Blackwell North Amer
All her life, Clementine Kennicutt has been filled with restless longing. A ladylike New Englander, she yearns to escape the chafing authoritarian rule of her pious, unforgiving father. Clementine has never met anyone remotely like Gus McQueen. So when the cowboy with the laughing eyes and big, urgent dreams presses her to elope with him to his Montana ranch, she is ready.
But nothing has prepared her for the harsh realities of frontier life or for the unpredictable hankering of the heart - least of all for the fact that almost from the first moment she sets eyes on Zach, Gus's dashing ne'er-do-well brother, she knows he's the one she was destined to love. Possessed of a rare spirit and courage, Clementine determines not to let the frontier defeat her as she strives for happiness and fulfillment within her fragile marriage.
On a vast canvas dotted with memorable characters and one rousing adventure after another - shootups, storms, a mine explosion, an attack by a rabid wolf - Penelope Williamson has created an irresistible work of fiction.
