Publisher's Summary

Soon after her mother's death, Lesley Morland's father, Ed, is offered the position of station master in Bountiful, Kansas. Having lost an arm fighting in the Spanish American war, Ed has a weakness for alcohol and difficulty keeping any job.Thinking Bountiful will provide them a fresh start, they are disappointed to find the town isn't much more than a station house and a few outbuildings. But railroad magnate Adam Benedict's proposed Texas Line will run through Bountiful, and the town begins to prosper. Handsome wagon driver Jim Kelly proposes to Lesley, and then a tragedy leaves her to fill her father's shoes as Bountiful's station master. She is overwhelmed by unexpected circumstances and responsibilities, with the future of Bountiful itself hanging in the balance.
