About this ebook

The Oregon Trail, 1852...

The future looks bleak for Betsy Lawrence. She's just lost both parents to a cholera epidemic, and upon arriving at Fort Laramie, she's told she can't continue with the wagon train and must marry a man she's never met.

She has a sharp wit, and an even sharper tongue.

He's a patient man, but has his limits, and she's reaching them fast.

"He's a good man", everyone tells her. Betsy thinks he's full of demands, but he's also full of promises.

They sound good, those promises. But will he keep them? Will she be able to survive as his bride?


A sick infant belonging to a Sioux chief,

A poker game with high stakes,

Two gruesome murders and possible war...

Is there anyone she can trust now?

Dare she tell her husband her plans?
