In the early 1800s, Lark and her brother set out to cross the North American continent to settle in the west. In the wilderness, she finally tastes the freedom her restless soul has thirsted for all her life. However, when she meets Charles, a half Crow who feels just as out of place in the world as she does, Lark begins to understand that her wanderlust isn't just a hunt for a new home-it's for someone who can love her independent spirit.


Lark and Charles' story unfolds in poignant, often poetic prose that seeks to awaken the wildish nature in all of us.

From bestselling author Sharon Sala comes the trilogy following Leticia Murphy on her adventures that take her from the Kansas Territories to Denver City, and from reluctant saloon girl to happily married woman.
Whippoorwill: Leticia Murphy never planned on becoming a saloon girl. But the Kansas Territories are a difficult place, and Lettie, orphaned at the age of twelve, had to do whatever it took to survive. When she comes to the rough-and-tumble town of Lizard Flats, she wants nothing more than a second chance—although she knows the likelihood of getting one is slim. Until, that is, a stranger comes to Lizard Flats, a preacher from the East, arriving to perform a wedding. But the man of God isn't quite as holy as he seems. And when he turns up dead in Lettie's bed, it sets off a chain of events nobody could have predicted that will ultimately lead to change not just for Lizard Flats, but for Lettie herself.
The Amen Trail: After the death of one of her clients in embarrassing circumstances, frontier saloon girl Leticia Murphy flees with erstwhile town drunk and handyman Eulis Potter. Eager to forget her colorful past and find redemption, Lettie is determined to turn over a new leaf, and Eulis is happy to follow her. The couple impersonates a preacher and his wife on the road from the Kansas Territories to Colorado. Along their journey, they marry couples, baptize babies, and perform burials. They manage to fool most people they meet into seeing them as upright Christians, but that doesn't stop them from getting into trouble, and falling in love. But when their true identities are discovered, Letty and Eulis must rely on each other, and the frontier toughness they've both had to develop in their previous lives to survive.
The Hen House: Once a frontier saloon girl, Leticia Murphy Potter is now happily married, and her husband, Eulis, couldn't be more overjoyed to call her his wife. The happy couple have become upstanding citizens of Denver City, and have just begun to build a home there together. But Letty's trials and tribulations aren't over, and trouble is brewing just over the horizon. Just when she believes her life couldn't possibly get better, it begins to get worse. Soon Letty and Eulis must work together to overcome new threats—both to their well-being and to their relationship.
"Linda Broday's heroes step right out of her books and into your heart." —Jodi Thomas, New York Times bestselling author

When the West was wild and man's law favored the few, these extraordinary women could be found...in the heart of an outlaw.

When three young children show up on outlaw Tait Trinity's doorstep, he knows he can't help them—a wanted man has no business raising kids. And yet he can't bring himself to turn them away. At a loss, he sends for the mail order bride he'd been writing to, hoping the demure dressmaker will be the answer to his prayers.

Melanie Dunbar is nothing like the bride Tait was expecting. She's rough and tumble...and hiding an ulterior motive. Dangerous men have taken her sister hostage, and if Melanie wants to see her alive, she'll have to betray her new husband. There's only one problem—the more time she spends with Tait, the more she comes to care for him. Yet as the noose begins to tighten, Melanie will have to make a terrible choice: save her sister...or the man she loves.

This is the book that everyone is talking about right now, and it’s destined to be a classic.
