Clara Early lost her mother during childbirth, and her father was murdered for his wealth. Being a wise man he had a will and left his fortune to his only child, Clara, that she can access upon her eighteenth birthday which is fast approaching. Clara has lived with her Aunt and cousin since the death of her father, but now trouble has shown up with demands and threats.
Harold “Hal” Horner was the second son, one who idealized his older brother, Mark. When Mark dies, Hal is lost in his family’s grief, with a father who drinks heavily and berates him, and a mother who is in depression. Even trying to appease his parents, going to law school and getting a degree doesn’t matter, so he leaves Philadelphia and travels to Idaho and starts mining, eventually buying his own mine.
The plot will have Clara and Hal on the same stagecoach traveling to Silver City, Idaho. Clara is fleeing for her life from her evil uncle, and Hal has purchased a silver mine, seeking treasures. Two people with a troubled past, trying to start over. Clara is lucky to find work at the hotel, with room and board and stays busy, enjoying her job and the people she works with. Hal must find a team of men that are willing to work and help him get the mine producing.
What happens when Hal finds a wanted posted with Clara’s picture? He knows she is hiding something, but he can’t just ask her. Hal is dealing with issues with his own family. The story will take on two people learning to confide and trust each other with problems. The more time that Clara and Hal spend together, they both realize they have developed strong feelings. But Hal is away working the mine and only comes to Silver City when bringing ore and picking up supplies.
“Pull up your socks, Hal. You trust her—she’s just obviously knee-deep in some kind of muck.”
Hal lets Clara see the wanted poster, and she will confide in him about her uncle, how her aunt and cousin told her to leave and not even write. She knows how slippery Lester is, and that he is coming for her, wanting her inheritance. Will Hal be able to keep her safe? Can he get past his family issues and finally acknowledge his love for her?
“It’s past time I move on with my life and prioritize what truly makes a life worth living.”
The story will take on a life and death situation and show how far a man is willing to go for a woman he loves. The story is a clean historical western, including action, and adventure, that ends on a happily ever after.
