About this title

Synopsis:

Mardee's father Ben had built an empire deep in New Mexico Territory. He could look around him with satisfaction at his stockpiles of lumber, herds of fat cattle, pastures of sleek and feisty racehorses, and a happy growing family. But Mardee's turquoise eyes were searching eagerly past the narrow borders of their mountain home. She soon becomes an interpreter for her father as he presides over statehood meetings. And she meets Jeff Corbin, a young ambitious lawyer from Socorro, and her tempestuous heart is set on fire. Then when New Mexico becomes a state in 1912, Jeff goes to work for the new governor in Santa Fe and promises to help Mardee get a job in the same office. This is more than the young girl can resist. She leaves her family and the gentle half-Mexican boy, Frankie Moseby, who has always loved her. What will be her fate among the strong political forces at work in this frontier town? Will she make her mark on this wild new state? And what about Jeff Corbin?

About the Author:

Barbara Spencer Foster is a third generation native of New Mexico. She often listened to her father, a long-time judge in Torrance County, tell vivid stories of his life in the Manzano Mountains as a young boy. His recollections of the Statehood Celebration a dozen years after the turn of the twentieth century served as the inspiration for this book. The author lives part of the year in Montana and part of the year in her native New Mexico. Her other two novels, Pecos Queen and Fire in the Bosque, were also published by Sunstone Press.
