About the Book
Can she release her prejudice to love again?
August 1910, Idaho-Montana Border
The fiery pain at her new husband’s murder might equal the disaster blazing across the Pacific Northwest. Stranded in the treacherous railroad camp, baking bread for survival, Juliana Hayes has no desire to marry a railroad ruffian like Lukas Filips, or anyone else. Can she release her prejudice to love again? Or will either one of them survive The Big Blowup to find out?
Based on true history when three million acres burned out of control on the border of Montana and Idaho darkening the skies all the way to the East Coast. It’s a wonder anyone survived!
Too nice a response would garner yet another proposal or a lewd proposition. No response and she’d have to lug all four heavy freight baskets onto the train to the next stop on her daily deliveries. Her pay packet from the railroad would be reduced if she cost precious production minutes, she knew from experience when she first started for the Milwaukee Railroad. The company didn’t care that she was a new widow. They cared she kept up with her quotas.
“Too bad we don’t have a little snow left over.” She mumbled as pleasant as possible, under the circumstances. “I hope we don’t see a fire season so dangerous again as that one two years ago.” She didn’t want to relive a summer like that for more reasons than the spot wildfires. Her grief had been as thick as the smoke trapped by the jagged peaks.
“Was bad, ja?”
The engine whistle blew three long shrieks as metal on metal squealed a high-pitched complaint braking the train to a stop. The nearness of the rocky mountain slopes amplified the sounds. The conductor, in overalls and brimmed summer hat, leaned out the caboose porch.
