Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This enlightening novel kicks off the publisher's "Women of the West" series, featuring fictional accounts of extraordinary real-life women who lived in the American West before 1880. It is May 1864, and Robin Walkingstick Heatherton, a beautiful young woman of half-Cherokee descent, has again disguised herself as a "Negro" soldier and infiltrated the Union Army in order to spy for her beloved Confederacy. Meanwhile, Union Army Major Thomas Corley, obsessed with Robin ever since her espionage work resulted in the death of his older brother, has offered $1000 in gold for information leading to her capture; he also has vowed to track Robin down himself, and to kill her. When her husband, a Confederate soldier, is shot by a firing squad commanded by Corley, Robin flees Virginia with their five-year-old son, Jeremy, for the West. En route, she wins a mining claim in the Colorado Territory, only to find out, upon arriving at the site, that it has already been settled by the bushy-bearded Garrison Parker, a Union Army hero. Eventually, the two fall in love, but too soon Garrison must make a fateful decision: whether to reveal Robin's possible involvement in one of the most shocking events in American history. Gear (Sand in the Wind) invests this story with historical detail and intriguing plot twists, delivered in lively prose.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I walked around the house like a zombie, my eyes glued to the page. Not the inconvenience of cooking nor the movie playing on T.V. succeeded of dragging my eyes from between the pages. The characters are so REAL. Garry is such a sympathetic character, not at all macho like many romance novels, but deffinatly a man. Jeremy, Robin's son is an adorable scared little boy and his affection for his toy horse, Traveller, that he made with his own hands just makes you want to cry. Robin is one of the strongest women I have ever read about. Every character portraid in the novel seemed very real and human to me. Even Major Corley. I found myself feeling sorry for him, even though he was the next thing to evil. This is a keeper for sure, I'd recommend it to ANYONE!!

I'm always hearing from New York publishers and editors that there's
nothing new being written about the Old West. Look again, pardners,
Gear has found a new slant by taking a serious look at the women
who won the West. I think the western genre just got a welcome
nudge. The western women slant will prove profitable and entertaining reading. As stated, "New York,
take another look."

If you've read and loved Gear's other works (like People of the Lakes, etc.) or even if you haven't. you're sure to fall in love with gear's writing all over again. Gear has a gift for blending historical fact into believable fiction. This novel made me re-think the way I imagined the Civil War and held me entranced until it was finished/
