The 19th century is rapidly drawing to a close, and the American West—for all its promise of wealth and opportunity—remains a gun-toting, hard-drinking man’s world. And the small town of Whiskey Bend, Colorado, is no different. So when two friends, Hallie, a young schoolteacher, and Pearl, a middle-aged widow, see their friend Mary being assaulted in the street, they decide they’ve had enough. After boldly rescuing Mary, the three women hightail it out of town in an open wagon, in search of a new life and safety. It is a journey that will take them to the very edge of hopelessness, as they are pursued by Mary’s assailant, face violent storms, and cross roiling rivers. But they will also meet good men, like Eli Morgan, the handsome rancher who welcomes them into his home and begins to develop tender feelings for the young Hallie.
But Eli has troubles of his own. Back home after serving in the army, he is shocked to find his family on the brink of falling apart, and his brother’s killer still on the loose. And now someone is trying to kill him….
A moving tale of strong women and goodhearted men, Leaving Whiskey Bend is a touching romance set in America’s heartland that will leave you breathless.
