“…but this is 1889 and a woman’s place is not with a rifle in one hand and a saddle in the other.”
–Susanna Gentry, Eliza’s mother
Steeped in rich Texas history, this adventurous story offers romance, intrigue, and a bit of danger. Ranches, cowboys, and cattle drives bring this story to life. Eliza Gentry has disagreed with her mother’s philosophy on being a lady since she was old enough to get around outside and follow her brothers and dad around the ranch. Spirited and outspoken, Eliza wants nothing more than to get an education and study the stars.
Spoiled and rich Ben Barnhart has his eyes set on Eliza and wants to marry her. Only problem with Ben is that William Gentry, Eliza’s father wants nothing to do with anyone named Barnhart. In an effort to make sure Ben Barnhart gets nowhere near his daughter, Mr. Gentry hires the John Brady Detective Agency to guard his daughter.
Eliza finds Mr. John Brady to be a bit of a mystery. Something about him seems remotely familiar, but she can’t seem to place him. Follow the adventures that lead Eliza into serious trouble and John Brady to the rescue. As secrets are uncovered and the truth reveals itself, can Eliza forgive the man she knows as John Brady?
This twelfth book in the Daughters of the Mayflower series is as good as the very first one. Don’t miss this fun read!
