Sophie Flannigan fled her home in Pennsylvania when her husband was arrested on their wedding day. She ends up in Deadwood, working in the local brothel--scrubbing and cleaning. Madame Dora offers her the chance to "move up in the world" by taking a room upstairs and entertaining clients but Sophie refuses. She finds solace by writing letters on scraps of paper and tying them to tumbleweeds with pieces of cloth torn from the hem of her tattered skirt.
Cam McBride lost his parents and his wife to an epidemic. Now its just him and his very young son trying to make a go of the family ranch. Cam finds one of Sophie's letters and his son claims the material for his own. On a trip to town for supplies, father and son bump into Sophie and things snowball from there. By the end of the day, they're married.
As they learn to live with each other, their happiness is threatened by a Pinkerton agent, among other things.
Ms. Davis has a voice well-suited to western romance. This story, reminiscent of one of my favorite westerns--Louis L'Amour's "Conagher"--is an enjoyable read and worthy of the IDA win. I recommend it to anyone who wants a well-written western romance.
As another reviewer said, the story seemed to move too fast. They met, married, fell in love, separated, came back together, all was forgiven, in a matter of days. All in all I found it to be a predictable story, but if you are looking for a quick, easy read, it's well worth your time.

Davis is a new to me author and I enjoyed reading this western novella. There was a lot packed into ninety seven pages and it didn’t disappoint. I was drawn in from the first page to the last and read it in one sitting in a couple of hours.
The story line had romance and love, heartache, fear, tears, a town with businesses including a whorehouse, a ranch, a few Native Americans, happiness and laughter. The characters were multifaceted and Sophie Catherine and Cam who were thrust together due to circumstances did indeed belong together even with his dead wife’s memories hanging over him. She was also the mother that Eli so desperately needed. Their first meeting was a hoot and it was interesting to see how the tumbleweed letters played a role in bringing them together. Madam Dora was more caring than she would want people to know and looked out for Sophie when she got into town.
The descriptions of the weather had me feeling the cold and the snow and I could envision the filth that was in the cabin from a year of Cam living just with his son and having to take care of the ranch and the animals too. There was nice closure and a happily ever after. I hope to add other books that Davis has written to my always growing TBR pile.
I do think the story could have been expanded and the span of time increased for real love to develop. I would have liked to see the wedding instead of hearing about it afterward. Even so, parts brought tears to my eyes, parts made me laugh out loud, and I very much enjoyed the journey. Eli is adorable.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
