Mary Breydon knew how to get things done. Raised on a Virginia plantation, she learned how to care for livestock, respect her workers, and keep good books. But after her husband is killed, she must make a living running a stagecoach station on the Cherokee Trail. Mary faces challenges that even the men eagerly anticipating her failure would have a difficult time overcoming. After being forced to fire the previous station manager with the aid of a bullwhip, Mary must track down stolen horses, defend against Indians, care for a wayward boy, and protect herself and her daughter from Jason Flandrau, a man determined to become governor of the Colorado Territory but who is also the ruthless war criminal who murdered Mary’s husband.
