In 1857, there are few settlements on the frontier more dynamic and dangerous than a riverboat community along the Missouri, where honest pioneers and shady hucksters compete to shape and define a township. Into this world comes the well-educated and opinionated Miss Adeline Furlough, full of spunk and repartee, who thinks she can rid Brownville, Nebraska, of its villains, and stand shoulder to shoulder with its founding fathers. However, when Miss Furlough, or ‘Addy’ as she’s called by friends, sets out to expose a criminal, she soon finds out it’s hard to distinguish between a good pioneer and a bad one, especially when both her suspects prove to be handsome and in possession of a certain charm. ┬áReception & Reading Free and Open to the Public.
