About the Book:
Beth Dodd has made a promise to help “Lulu”, a young prostitute at the Blue Feather, keep her baby if she decides to leave the whorehouse and become a respectable woman. But Beth hadn’t counted on the obstacles she and the new mother will face from society in the mining town of Lundy. From the obstinate landlady, Mrs. Ford, to her intractable German boss, Gus Herschel, Beth must fight for the woman she’s promised to help. But Beth
Dodd never gives in, and she keeps her word with a stubbornness that Lundy folks are not accustomed to seeing from a woman.
Once Lulu, now known as the more respectable Louisa Parmley, starts working for
Gus in his kitchen, she proves that Beth was right to take a chance on her. She
has every intention of making a good life for her new daughter. But can she
also hope to find happiness with Gus? And will Gus be able to accept her and
baby Sophie Ann as his? Love was never in the cards for Gus, but Louisa dreams
of happiness with the stoic man, and Beth is determined to bring them together
through HER INDEPENDENT SPIRIT.
“The judge said you have enough to buy a small house. What are your plans, Beth?”asked Val.
“Don’t want no house in town, especially not in no mining town. Reckon with what I can get for my old wedding ring and what I done put by, I might can get me a small farm if they ain’t too dear.”
“You should be able to homestead. That would give you 160 acres. You need to build a house and improve the land, but the fee is very reasonable.”
“Where you figure I can find land like that?”
“I think they have some plots down by Robinson Creek, close to where I am. Some of it starts into the foothills which wouldn’t be good for farming, but would give you timber and firewood. There’s also meadow land that’s flat and good for grazing if you get some livestock.”
“Druther have crop land.”
The day was overcast and even in May, the meadow had not greened up yet, but
this is the Robinson Creek area where Val suggests Beth look for land.
