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!

Read and Excerpt

July 4th, 1910
Adair, Idaho – Deep in the Bitterroot Mountains Milwaukee Railroad Western Extension on the Montana-Idaho Border

Juliana Hayes Squinted against the sun breaking over the sharp rock outline of the Bitterroot Mountains. Each escaping ray ratcheted up the thermometer in the early Pacific Northwest morning.

Giant cedars looming above eighty-foot white pine should offer refuge and shade. Instead their shadows falling across the rails and platform represent the immobile bars of her prison. In the distance, the forest closed so tightly it looked like rolls of dark green velvet. Such beauty hid the malevolent nature of the area’s extreme dangers. AS dangerous as some of the men Juliana cautiously avoided since being stranded.

How much longer until she could break out of the harsh existence that held her captive for over two years?

The deep snows in winter and the fires in summer, only two of the extremes she could do without. The oncoming train puffed out clouds of smoke against a sky so blue and clear it resembled a lake more than the heavens. But she’d ridden that train many times praying they’d make it to the next mining camp through heavy snow and bitter cold.
