From the author of the award-winning The Cabin at Jackson Hole . . .
Ambitious and sophisticated William Winthrop has quit Boston to enter frontier politics in the new state of Wyoming, where opportunities abound. There, William meets Blaine Wallace, a fiery and independent suffragette, living near the town of Buffalo, who he believes is the perfect person to advise him on local matters.
But she has more important concerns than giving guidance to a political novice. Blaine has recently taken over a sheep ranch and is still learning to manage this enterprise as well as hold her own among other ranchers. Still, she finds herself intrigued by William, imagining he just might improve certain wrongs for the better.
As for William, he can only kick himself for becoming ever drawn to this audacious woman and her brash behavior, so different from his own. Yet despite rocky beginnings, their lives become further entangled as the territory dissolves into a county war, threatening everything they hold dear.
As greater forces face off over who will possess this beautiful land, two unlikely souls collide, then find whether they can ever come together.
