In 1868, Otto Atwell has a 160 acre
homestead near Abilene, Kansas and a limp as a result of an arrow shot in his
low back while with the 16th Kansas Cavalry on the Powder River Expedition in
1865. What he doesn’t have is a wife. Then again, what woman would want to
marry a cripple? 
 
Libby Jones comes to Junction City as a mail order bride. Not
only does the man who sent for her reject her, he tries to sell her to the
local brothel to recoup his fee. Otto offers to marry her, but she rejects him
in favor of a job with his relatives. 


Will Otto’s offer still stand when
trouble from Libby’s past catches up with her?

 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

Snippet:
Otto could tell he needed to come
to his brother’s rescue. “Thank you, Henry. I appreciate what you did.” He
faced to his father. “Try to not be too hard on him, Pa. I think he did use
good judgment. He held his fire until it was clear that man intended to charge
me and Libby with the knife and do bodily harm, but he didn’t wait so long he
and I were upon each other and Henry couldn’t hit him without risking me.”
 
            Henry
stood a little taller after Otto’s defense, but still he turned to his father
for approval.
 

 

            Otto
waited while his father, with a bemused expression, looked between his two
sons. Otto knew part of the problem was that the words “Henry” and “good
judgment” didn’t normally go together in the same sentence.
