"An easy and delightful read. Thoroughly recommended for those who like heart-warming tales."
"Very entertaining and a wonderful heartwarming story."
After her parents are killed, eighteen-year-old Bessie is sold by her ruthless uncle to a saloon owner.
Tricked into believing she is there to sing, she is horrified to learn it is not her voice she is selling, but her body. As a soiled dove she is so desperate to escape, she risks fleeing with Thomas, one of her clients.
Is he as kind as he seems? Does he love her like he says, or has she jumped from one dire situation into another?
Warning: due to the nature of the story, unlike the author's other books, Bessie is not a 'clean & wholesome' story.
