Publisher's Summary

A woman ahead of her time, Mary Breydon knew how to get things done. Raised on a Virginia plantation, she learned how to care for livestock, respect her workers, and keep good books. But after her husband is killed, Mary must provide for her young daughter by running a stage coach station on the Cherokee Trail. With the help of an Irish maid and a mysterious stranger, Mary faces challenges that even the men eagerly anticipating her failure would have a difficult time overcoming. After firing the previous station manager with the aid of a bullwhip, she must track down stolen horses, care for a wayward boy, and defend against Indians. If that wasn’t enough, she also has to protect herself from the man who murdered her husband—and is coming for Mary next.

An old stagecoach trail,

The people reading the book were excellent! The characters became alive! I listened to the book twice, because it was set in the area that we live in. This book rates as one of the best stories that Louis Lamour has written. I favour the books written about earlier times in the old west. My wife’s grandfather homesteaded a ranch in Wyoming, I walked in the path that the stagecoach had left, eroded with time.

Good story Terrible reading.

I was happy when I saw this book was coming to audible. Once I began to listen to it I was less happy. the narrator was terrible. She was so bad it took all of the enjoyment out of listening to the story.

Great

Unusually, and refreshingly, written from the female perspective.
A good story and well drawn characters.

A pleasant surprise

Louis l'Amour and a female narrator? Yes! Carrington McDuffie gives real character to her narration and so enhances the enjoyability of an already enjoyable story.
