Yearning to escape her stifling, authoritarian upbringing, ladylike New Englander Clementine Kennicutt elopes with cowboy Gus McQueen to Montana, where she comes face to face with the harsh realities of frontier life. Reissue. 200,000 first printing.

Simon and Schuster
A classic sweeping tale of intense passion as wide as the open prairie, from the bestselling romance novelist Penelope Williamson.

“There’s a bigness about Montana that tends to frighten a lot of people. But it’s not so big you can’t find what you’re looking for, if you know what that something is.”

A handsome cowboy with laughing eyes, Gus McQueen sweeps like a Western wind through Boston’s staid streets. His big dreams capture the heart of proper young Clementine Kennicutt, whose zest for life has been stifled by fear of her stern father. When Gus proposes marriage, Clementine impulsively accepts.

Montana is all Clementine has dreamed it could be . . . and far, far more. The harsh realities of frontier life are a shock, but it is Gus’s ne’er-do-well brother Rafferty whose raw masculinity steals her breath away. Gus is the man she married, though, and Clementine is determined that neither the frontier nor her marriage will defeat her. With her adventurous spirit set free at last, she overcomes every challenge . . . until Rafferty forces her to face him—and herself—and make her choice.
