For a chance to enter the drawing to win this book simply post a comment about the toughest job you've ever had to do to support a family. If you haven't been in this situation personally, then just post what you think the toughest job would be if you had to support your family back in the pioneering days. I'll go first. The toughest job I've ever had was working for Child Protective Services. I had to work to support my family and provide health insurance for us all. If I'd had to pick the toughest job (for me) in the pioneer days (outside of the obvious saloon girl/prostitute?) I'd have to say being a wet nurse. Weird that this came to my mind, eh? I loved nursing my babies but don't know if I could do it all the time and for other people's infants.
About the book:
Jane Albright is newly widowed, with one child to care for and another on the way. When she learns that she is at risk of losing the family home and freighting business to greedy moneylender Franklin Lloyd, she has no choice but to brandish a bullwhip and haul freight all the way to Deadwood, South Dakota. Franklin agrees to give Jane six months to pay the note, and it’ll take every ounce of grit she has to secure her children’s future. Franklin admires the strong and beautiful woman - but how can he help her when he is her greatest enemy?
Got this book the same day I got LFY in Sugarcreek, Ohio. Haven't gotten a chance to crack this book open yet because I read the other one first. Too many books, so little time.
