After the Civil War, the West of Colorado Territory is an untamed land, where a woman must rely on her own wit and resiliency to realize her dreams. Until she meets her match, that is, as Marjorie Bascom does in Lucky Stars by debut author Patricia Roy. That meeting enables Marjorie to maneuver Leon McCoy into marriage so that she can claim the land she loves for her own. Strangers when they marry, Leon and Marjorie learn they've each lucked into something special. But is luck enough to hold a marriage together when neither partner is sure of the other?Patricia Roy's debut sparkles with folksy charm and warmth that cheer like a certain lucky star blazing across the horizon. A writer to watch ascend.
