The wife of notorious William Henry Handy Plumer--the Bannack sheriff hanged by Vigilantes, Electa Bryan Plumer has much to offer readers. This incredibly detailed and fast-moving historical novel presents a portion of Electa's life just prior to meeting Plumer, her courtship with Plumer, and the short period of time she was Plumer's wife. This is a love story from a woman's perspective, set in the early 1860s Gold Rush West, and deeply entrenched in Idaho Territory (Montana) history and lore. The events of the Civil War and the "settling" of the frontier West are just two of the fascinating historical threads working their way through Electa's incredible personal saga of exploration, adventure, love, and loss.

From the Back Cover:

As the Civil War rages on, the gold fields and open valleys of the frontier Rocky Mountains fill with treasure seekers, fugitives, and missionaries. Twenty-year-old schoolteacher and adventurer Electa Bryan finds her way to the Sun River Government Farm to "civilize" the Blackfeet and help her married sister with family life. She also finds herself becoming entangled with the notorious Bannack, Montana, sheriff William Henry Handy Plumer, whose true character and how he meets his fate are but two of the mysteries unraveled in this beautifully imagined, meticulously researched historical novel.
Based on real-life Montana characters, Strength of Stone is a love story told through journal entries and letters that bring vividly to life Electa's experience of adventure, love, and loss.
