This Godforsaken PlaceeBook - 2015
The year is 1885 and Abigail Peacock is resisting what seems to be an inevitable future--a sensible career as a teacher and marriage to the earnestly attentive local storeowner.
But then she buys a rifle, and everything changes.
This Godforsaken Place is the absorbing tale of one tenacious woman's journey set against the dramatic backdrop of the Canadian Wilderness and American Wild West. Told by four narrators--including Annie Oakley and Gabriel Dumont--Abigail's story brings the high stakes of the New World into startling focus.
