A Blaze of Poppies
It is 1916, and Mexico is on the brink of revolution. Despite armed bandits streaming over the border into New Mexico and prejudice against female ranchers, feisty little Agnes Day is determined to keep the family ranch and run it on her own terms. Her ally in the fight is Will Bowers, a strong and silent New Mexico Guardsman assigned to nearby Camp Columbus under General Blackjack Pershing, but Will hides a dark and disturbed background that stops him from committing to any one or any place. Then the United States enters World War I and both Agnes and Will are swept into conflagration. Can Agnes secure a peaceful future on the Sunrise Ranch after the insanity and bloodshed of war? Dare she hope to share that future with someone else?
