Three young women of entirely different backgrounds were thrown together by fate then demolished the Mexican slave trade for a decade. This fast moving, historically based novel with non-stop action and dramatic predicaments is captivating. It takes place on the prairies and in the river valleys of southwestern America of the 1820’s. The pioneer women that set out from Independence for the green valleys of the Pacific Coast had no idea they were targets for slavers bent on their abduction and subjugation into Mexican brothels, but they were. Our three heroines gave hundreds of those women another chance at life. It has conflict, violence, and death as well as tenderness, mercy, and love.
