(From the publisher):
In the 1870s the frontier was a battleground, where the U.S. Army fought Plains warriors, outlaws terrorized the land, and lawmen took no prisoners. Into the West came a family of New York City stage performers: a widowed father, his son, and a daughter whose beauty and singing voice could make the most hardened frontiersmen weep.
The Fontaine family was not prepared for the life they found across the Mississippi. From Abilene to Dodge City they crossed paths with some of the legendary figures on the frontier, from Jesse James to Bill Hickok and General George Custer. All the while, the Fontaines kept searching for a place to settle down - until they set their sights on the boomtown called Denver.
Awaiting Lillian Fontaine in Denver is fame and loss, fortune and betrayal. But between Dodge and her destiny are a thousand miles of unconquered country, an outlaw band, and one man who will force the young songstress to give the performance of her life...
