In a prequel to her best-selling The Cowboy, Johnston sweeps us back to the Republic of Texas in the 1840s and into the lives of the early Creeds. Texas Ranger Jarrett Creed and Creighton "Cricket" Stewart (another strong heroine, incidentally) fight for their new republic and struggle to forge a lasting marriage in the process. First published in 1988 as part of her "Sisters of the Lone Star" trilogy and out of print for some time, Frontier Woman will be of particular interest to fans of Johnston's current "Bitter Creek" series, which continues the story of the Creeds into the present. Johnston is a New York Times best-selling writer and lives in Florida.
