A Bride's Flight From
Virginia City, Montana
by Murray Pura
-From The Back Cover-
A beautiful woman who harbors secrets
Too Shameful To Share...
A brave man determined to protect two children who are witnesses to murder...
And the ruthless outlaw who threatens their survival.
It's an ordinary day on the range until Zephaniah Parker, owner of the Bar Zee Ranch, finds two children alone and cowering in fear. Young Cheyenne and Cody Wyoming managed to evade the vicious Raber Gang — led by notorious Seraphim Raber, aka the Angel of Death — but after witnessing a cold-blooded massacre by the gang, the children aren't safe. And neither are the inhabitants of southwest Montana.
Sweet Blue Meadows rancher Charlotte Spence is determined to see Cheyenne and Cody out of harm's way and back among their Amish relatives of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. But she'll need Zeph's help. Together, the two begin a long journey east, fraught with danger — and unexpected emotions.
When Zeph and Charlotte find their relationship deepening into romance, can they keep their heads, hearts, and lives together long enough to see their journey through?
Or will evil designs and one shocking confession divide them forever?
This is the first book that I have read by Murray Pura but I doubt it will be the last... I chose this as the first one purely on the title, I live in Montana and I have been to Virginia City.
This Book earned a 3 Bark Rating.

The hero is a pacifist of sorts, refusing to use a gun (he has his reasons stemming from the Civil War), but he will do whatever it takes to protect the heroine and the children. He's a good guy, wanting to be left to run his ranch in peace, and by the end of the story raise a few kids with a pretty girl in the hills of Montana.
The heroine is gentle and kind but there is also a good bit of steel in her. In the first few pages she manages to shoot a mountain lion that is attacking her, not only that but she fires right after she falls of her horse and she actually manages to hit something! There were some shades of a Louis L'Amour heroine in that scene.
If you can't decide between a Western or an Amish story to read before bed, try A Bride's Flight and you can have both.
