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!
Flame of the Rockies Excerpt 2
Did there exist another place so wildly inhospitable?
"Anot'er hot day, Mrs. Hayes." The baggage handler lifted his flat cloth cap and rubbed a gray cotton sleeve across his forehead. "Who knew America would be such a hot place?" He flopped the cap back on his head as he waited with her on Adair's small, sturdy platform for the train to sidle up. She'd join the shift change for the mines dotted through the wilderness settlements and narrow, serpentine valley to deliver her quota of baked goods.
"We've never had a summer as hot before, not that I can remember." His foreign accent hard to distinguish all the words.
Was he Austrian, Belgian, Croatian? She didn't ask. He obviously wasn't Chinese or Japanese with his blond hair. She tried not to wrinkle her nose. It was blond, wasn't it? Hard to tell when these men likely bathed only on their day off. He stood tall enough to stick out among the Japanese who mostly inhabited the tent city of Adair nowadays.
She could speak to the weather safely. No more though without encouraging him. “After the avalanches in the spring, I don't think anyone expected this drought."
