Summary

Summary

In the late 1800s, a southern gambler moves to Proffitt, Kansas, hoping to make a living as a saloonkeeper. But he soon becomes a target of the prohibition movement, led by the enchanting yet volatile Agatha Downing. They are hopeless adversaries--until the innocence of a child opens their eyes and hearts to each other. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
