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!
This Austrian, or whatever, was new on the job in a constantly changing mass of men. He’d met her at the brick dome ovens in Adair the last few days to help load a converted mining cart with the staples she baked for the workers up and down the line. At least she could understand most of his English—and he didn’t seem to be a Montenegrin, by the look of him. Those vicious men tended to work in Rowland and Taft, on her Tuesday and least favorite route. Why did she have to feed the very men who murdered her husband? A shiver ran through her spine. She’d have to deliver the bread order tomorrow. Each week she considered adding sawdust, or worse, to the dough—and each week she mashed the desire down deep as she punched the bread into submission. Twenty loaves untainted by her dark desire for vengeance.
Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord. She repeated that verse each time the snake’s temptation squeezed its coils around her heart.
“I hear said da snow gets deep as the depot roof.”
Juliana nodded again and graced the man with a quick, courteous smile careful not to encourage anything.
