It was no work for a woman. That's what they told Mary Breydon when she came to manage a rundown stagecoach station on the Cherokee Trail. But Mary had no choice. Her fine Virginia home burned to ashes in the Civil War and her husband was brutally shot down on the way to Colorado. She needed to make a new beginning for herself and her young daughter on the raw frontier. Isolated in an untamed land, their life at the station was achingly hard and they faced the constant danger of attacks by outlaws and marauding Indians. Yet, with the support of a spirited Irish woman, a fearless orphan boy, and, most of all, the mysterious gunman Temple Boone, Mary found the courage to shape her station into a vital stop on America's westward journey. Until the vicious murderer whose bloody rampages had stained her past suddenly stalked Mary Breydon to Cherokee Station.… (more)

This was a fun read. A young woman and her husband and daughter are traveling to a stagecoach station near Laporte, Colorado, to take up the position of station agent there. On the way the husband is murdered, and his wife decides to take the station agent position herself. The men responsible for her husband's death are also on their way to the Laporte area, and they don't want to leave her alive. ( )

This is a good tale. A recently-widowed woman heads west with her young daughter to take over the management of a stagecoach station on the Cherokee Trail. She learns to love the work and the people of the west, while fighting off bad guys. The story doesn't end with her marrying any of the strong, silent types out there, which I thought was great. ( )
