The Eyes of a Stranger (Nan's Heritage #4)
Rejection was an emotion Gertie Brenan knew well. At the age of eighteen, she finds herself at the threshold of life and comes to realize that because of the rejection of her fiance, many options are open to her. In her childhood rejection held her captive. Now, it gives her freedom that few women of her time were afforded. Set in the beauty of Denver, Colorado in the 1860s, The Eyes of a Stranger follows vivid characters who are fraught with conflict, sorrow, and the tenacity to build a life in the frontier of the Western United States.
