About the Book:

A fiercely independent woman returns to the frontier of her birth only to find that western society is even less receptive to her notions of women's rights and sexual lilberty than strait-laced New England. Sorrel McCaffrey is smart, reckless, and plays like she has nothing to lose. She just wants her freedom, to dress in pants, to gallop her fine mare and to take pleasure where she finds it. She is drawn to the taciturn sheriff of Garnet, Montana, from the day she steps off the stagecoach. While she struggles to know her dour father, she draws the attention of a cattle baron who sees her as a means to acquire her father's ranch, a doctor whose misdiagnoses she challenges, and a hellfire preacher who rants against her from his pulpit. And she is troubled by her growing attachment to the lawman whose cold eyes hide his dread that each time he is allowed to touch her may be the last.
