Publisher's Summary

At mid-life, four years a widow, a homestead left in her care, Jessie Tate faces yet another challenge. Her dying brother, Gabe, has lost his ranch and intends to sell his herd of prize crossbreeds to a Texan to cover gambling debts.

On his death-bed he confesses the debts and asks Jessie to manage his affairs. He reveals, as well, that his teenage daughter, Kitty, is really Jessie's child, taken from her when she lay near death at the child's birth.

Heartbroken by her father's impending death, the loss of the ranch, and driven by a sense of injustice, Kitty spirits the beloved crossbreeds and their magnificent thoroughbred sire into the wilderness.

Knowing Kitty and the herd will face untold dangers, Jessie makes the tough decision to find Kitty and trail the herd 250 miles across the wilds of Montana to her home in the Bitterroot Valley.

As she faces the hazards of the wilderness, she also faces the challenge of earning Kitty's trust and helping the girl resolve her grief. At the same time, Jessie must contend with Sam Dillard, the persistent Texan who has a claim on the herd, and an increasing hold on her heart.

    "Good story telling"

    Good old time story telling! I enjoyed this audiobook quite a lot. The story had something I always like: local color. The author clearly loves the West, horses, and ranching / farming and she writes beautifully about these things weaving them throughout her story. The story had lots of rugged action. Characters are interesting although leaning slightly towards romantic cliches, but buoyed by the wonderful writing. A story to enjoy.
