Ryan's bestselling backlist with a distinctive new author treatment.
the death of her parents, Charlotte faces many problems, but nothing
can destroy her dreams. In fact, as she goes through the fire,
she grows stronger and more determined. Holding fast to the
love of a horse, the support of a friend, and the wisdom of an elderly
stable master who had escaped slavery, Charlotte chooses to seek
her own freedom and manages to ride into history.
fast-paced, courageous, and inspiring story, readers adventure with
Charlotte Parkhurst as she first finds work as a stable hand, becomes
a famous stage-coach driver (performing brave feats and outwitting
bandits), finds love as a woman but later resumes her identity as
a man after the loss of a baby and the tragic death of her husband,
and ultimately settles out west on the farm she'd dreamed of having
since childhood. It wasn't until after her death that anyone discovered
she was a woman." (from Amazon)
