About this title


This fictional biography provides the humorous, sometimes shocking answer to the question, "What happen when a spoiled, headstrong, eastern belle marries an equally temperamental Welshman and sets out to homestead on the Iowa prairie? The fireworks are inevitable when the spitfire heroine is Castle Gayle and her hastily wedded husband is the handsome, volatile Jonathan Gayle. Castle was something of a hellcat and her transformation from society ingenue in crinoline and hoops to frontier wife in calico was not accomplished without plenty of stormy exchanges, But the couple's quarrels remained strictly private. Castle and Jonathan managed to present a suitably united front to the community and both were highly respected citizens. Castle served as doctor and midwife to all her frontier neighbors for 20 miles around. A devil inner own home, she was regarded as an angel of mercy in her community and earned the respect and gratitude of those she helped. Based on true historical and biographical events in the lives of the author's foster grandparents, the book presents a rollicking story of frontier romance set in the heartland of mid-nineteenth-century America.
