Clementine Kennicutt is a proper Bostonian lady until she literally bumps into Gus McQueen and elopes with him to Montana. Hannah Yorke is the town prostitute who becomes a prosperous landowner, though she is forever marked by her past. And Erlan Woo is a young Chinese picture bride whose heart remains in China. These three seemingly mismatched characters become fast friends.

If you've ever had a hankerin' to go to Montana,this is the romance novel for you. Full of time period details and the descriptions of the land, the weather, the aura of the whole experience of living in Montana left me aching for my next road trip.

From back of book: She was torn between two brothers. All her life proper Bostonian Clementine Kennicutt yearned to escape the pious tyranny of her father's rule. So when Gus McQueen rode into town and swept her off her feet, she was ready for him. Eloping with the carefree cowboy was the answer to her prayers.....until she met his brother.
