In late October of 1906, Cassie Lockwood appears at the front door of Engstrom’s Bar E Ranch, Argus, South Dakota and claims her rights on the half of the ranch. Although Cassie’s arrival surprises Mavis Engstrom, she gives her a warm welcome. Is it only because once Mavis was in love with Cassie’s father, Adam with whom then her not-yet husband, Ivar, bought this land? But Adam left the ranch many years ago for the Wild West Show. Now, both men are dead and only she knows that Cassie’s papers are legal. Mavis reveals the truth to her family. While her daughter, Gretchen and the younger son, Lucas gladly accept Cassie, Mavis’ oldest son, Ransom is suspicious and isn’t happy of sharing his land with the stranger. Cassie, the former star of failed Wild West Show, has her own doubt. An excellent shooter and trick rider, she knows nothing about managing land or even cooking.
“A home. All she wanted was a home.”
Whispers In The Wind, the second book by Lauraine Snelling in her Wild West Wind series, will catch your attention right away and hold it through entire book.
