9780553270471: The Cherokee Trail: A Novel

Mary Breydon knew how to get things done. Raised on a Virginia plantation, she learned how to care for livestock, respect her workers, and keep good books. But after her husband is killed, she must make a living running a stagecoach station on the Cherokee Trail. Mary faces challenges that even the men eagerly anticipating her failure would have a difficult time overcoming. After being forced to fire the previous station manager with the aid of a bullwhip, Mary must track down stolen horses, defend against Indians, care for a wayward boy, and protect herself and her daughter from Jason Flandrau, a man determined to become governor of the Colorado Territory but who is also the ruthless war criminal who murdered Mary’s husband.

From the Publisher:

It was no work for a woman. That's what they told Mary Breydon when she came to manage a rundown stagecoach station on the Cherokee Trail. But Mary had no choice. Her fine Virginia home burned to ashes in the Civil War and her husband was brutally shot down on the way to Colorado. She needed to make a new beginning for herself and her young daughter on the raw frontier. Isolated in an untamed land, their life at the station was achingly hard and they faced the constant danger of attacks by outlaws and marauding Indians. Yet, with the support of a spirited Irish woman, a fearless orphan boy, and, most of all, the mysterious gunman Temple Boone, Mary found the courage to shape her station into a vital stop on America's westward journey. Until the vicious murderer whose bloody rampages had stained her past suddenly stalked Mary Breydon to Cherokee Station.
