Once the "Girl Wonder" of the Wild West circuit, Ruby Fortune faces an untenable choice: shoot her abusive husband and father of her sons or continue to live with scars that never heal. Strap on your chaps and holster for a wild ride through turn-of-the-century Arizona Territory. 

"A vividly rendered story of survival in the Arizona Territory."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Ruby Fortune defines grit and grace--she is the heroine we need in these times. Riveting and beautifully told."
--Susan Tweit, award-winning author of Bless the Birds

"A powerful and gripping tale of survival and triumph over abuse, misogyny, and economic challenges. It rings as true in the 21st century as it did in the time frame in which it is set. A must-read!"
-Jim Jones, award-winning author of The Lights of CimarrĂ³n
