Summary
In 1890 the rough Western town of Whiskey Bend, Colorado, is no place for single women. The final straw for widow Pearl Parsons and young schoolteacher Hallie Wolcott is the assault on their friend Mary. Desperately fleeing from the attacker, the three women drive away in an open wagon, seeking new lives and safety. When they're caught in a violent storm on the road, help comes in the form of a stranger, Eli Morgan, a former military general turned reluctant rancher. He welcomes the women into his home, and it isn't long before he and Hallie develop tender feelings for each other. But Eli has troubles of his own--a family on the brink of falling apart and now someone is trying to kill him
