The Three Widows of Wylder by Julie Howard

Three woman each totally different, sharing only one thing in common. They were on the run from the law for different reasons. Clara the eldest at 36 running away to her brother's farm after the killing of her husband, then there was Mary Rose whom you wanted to shake till her teeth rattled - vacuous and empty headed but sharp when it came to her own survival again after the death of her third husband and still very young, and finally Emma the brave, different but also running away. The setting of the rugged terrain of the Wild West was very relevant to the story. The hardships endured in reaching Clara's brother's house which would afford them protection they thought was the key. Each woman sought a life after reaching their safe place, two of them in marriage and one in a secure future. That it all worked out in different ways and they all found redemption to live their lives is this story. Nicely told, descriptive and rather a different setting.
