Description

"A romantic, Dickensian tale of the American West." Young Emily McIntyre, orphaned daughter of an Idaho prostitute and a slain gold miner, loses herself in the pages of Dickens and Carroll to escape the grind of her boarding-house chores-and the scurrilous gossip that haunts her. When a dazzling variety troupe and its fashionable star stop over in Saw Tooth City, Emily seizes her ticket out of the mining camps and flees to join them. But will the enchantments of the East, and the lure of the mighty Mississippi, bring her peace and happiness? On an adventure-filled journey from Idaho Territory to the city of St. Louis, Emily must find the courage to confront the truth, as well as learn to forgive and love again.show more
