PRAISE FOR: "I love Nancy Radke's Trahern stories, and this one's another winner. It's about a widow who's been living under the thumb of her controlling mother-in-law. On her 20th birthday, she strikes out boldly on her own, selling her ugly black mourning dresses to buy a modest wardrobe before heading west. Her harrowing adventures and the wonderful relationship that develops between her and the man we know she's going to marry will keep you turning the pages." Ruth Glick, AKA Rebecca York
