but she is one now.
Aleksandra is alone and running to prevent her father’s killer from discovering their family secret. Disguised as a Pony Express rider in 1860’s Utah, she winds up in even deeper trouble when she rides full speed into the Paiute Indian War. Can she and Xavier, her Californio boss, escape the Indians on the warpath, as well as evade the man who’s already killed Aleksandra’s father—and set his sights on her?
Praise for A Long Trail Rolling:
