Pursued by armed men with dogs, a strange young woman tears across the moonlit wilderness.
Mary Boulton, widowed by her own hand, is on the run.
She finds refuge with Mrs Cawthra-Elliot, but for how long?
With her brothers-in-law seeking vengeance, Mary has ridden into the mountains.
Can Mary trust the man they call The Ridgerunner?
Deserted by The Ridgerunner, Mary now heads for the mining town of Frank.
Widowed by her own hand, Mary Boulton is a fugitive.
For now she has stopped running, in the care of Rev Bonnycastle.
But her brothers-in-law are still on her trail.
With horse dealers from Montana in town, Mary and McEchern hit upon a new business venture.
The landslide has left the town in ruins; who has survived and who has perished?
The railroad is up and running again after the landslide and, rifles across their backs, Mary's brothers-in-law are in town.
Pregnant, arraigned for murder and certain to hang, surely Mary is beyond help?
