Produktbeschreibung
Haunted by tragedy, a proud Cajun beauty and a dashing cavalry officer battle to forge a new life on the Texas frontier in this sweeping historical saga. Raised by her adoring father, Rachel Delys loves the woods and bayous of East Texas and intends to never leave their isolated home. But when her father dies and drunken neighbors murder her lover and attack Rachel, she takes shelter at a nearby plantation. Harry Bourne, owner of Gloryoak, treats Rachel with kindness and compassion, unaware that his missing brother, Tom, was one of her assailants. Rachel believes she will never feel passion again, but is so grateful for Harry's protective love she marries him. When the third Bourne brother, Matt, returns to Gloryoak after fighting Apaches in Arizona, a dangerous attraction blazes between Rachel and the former soldier. Matt tries to cut his visit short, but an unthinkable tragedy irrevocably bonds him to Rachel and sends the pair on an eight-hundred-mile journey to a grassy valley in the Big Bend region of the Rio Grande. There they meet Guadalupe and her baby, Juan, the only survivors of a brutal raid on their Mexican border village. In a world of savage violence and austere grandeur, the four outcasts must rely on each other to succeed. Matt hires on at a nearby ranch, teaching the vaqueros how to fend off raiding Comanches, while Rachel and Lupe hunt for food and make adobe bricks to build a house. When the Civil War erupts and Matt is called to join the fight, the women bravely defend their fledging ranch from bandits. A riveting chronicle of adventure, romance, and intrigue, A Woman Clothed in Sun brings to life a fascinating chapter in American history and reveals the courage, stamina, and faith it took to survive those perilous times.

Autorenporträt
Born on the High Plains near the tracks of the Santa Fe Trail, Jeanne Williams's first memories are of dust storms, tumbleweeds, and cowboy songs. Her debut novel, Tame the Wild Stallion, was published in 1957. Since then, Williams has published sixty-eight more books, most with the theme of losing one's home and identity and beginning again with nothing but courage and hope, as in the Spur Award-winning The Valiant Women (1980). She was recently inducted into the Western Writers Hall of Fame, and has won four Western Writers of America Spur Awards and the Levi Strauss Saddleman Award. For over thirty years, Williams has lived in the Chiricahua Mountains of southeastern Arizona.
