Jenny was the respectable daughter of a respectable missionary. Outlaws, murders, and the fate of the state weren't on her to-do list.
Texas in the 1850s is the home of ranchers, outlaws, and men who can ride on horseback for hours without weariness. And in these rough and tumble days of the early West, it’s home to young Jenny Forsythe, who feels no one will listen to her. Something’s wrong at the hotel where she and her father work. A mysterious criminal and a beautiful girl have inhabited the place and Jenny knows her guest, Arabella, is in danger. She needs someone to help and her well-meaning but deceived father won’t be able to. But a young drifter called Viajero just might show up in time to steal the moment. Especially since he’s already working for a man in disguise who is in the vast fields of Texas on a mission of his own.
