Summary "From award-winning journalist and first-time novelist Derek Catron comes a historical Western and love story set on "the bloody Bozeman," the trail that sparked the only Indian war that ended with the army's defeat. In the spring of 1866, Annabelle sets out with her extended family to the gold fields of Montana. Guiding the wagon train is Josey Angel, a cavalryman said to have killed more men than any soldier in the Union army. His reputation frightened Annabelle. His almost boyish appearance and manner intrigued her. The journey through landscapes so beautiful and vast that anything seems possible will test--and strengthen--Annabelle, a Southern widow who lost everything in the war. Josey discovers new purpose in seeing to the safety of the settlers. Haunted by memories of the war and what he did to survive it, he sees in Annabelle a reason to think beyond living one day to the next, if he can only find redemption for his sins. As they begin to turn to each other, Annabelle and Josey discover even greater perils. A mysterious gang of bandits stalks their trail, and the Sioux will do anything to drive away the interlopers. Josey, Annabelle and all of those they care for are unwittingly headed into the path of a new and savage war. With richly drawn characters and an action-packed plot, Trail Angel takes readers on a fast-paced ride from a new and distinctive voice in the genre"-- Provided by publisher.
