The Husband Tree
Belle Tanner buries her third worthless husband and makes a vow over his shallow grave. She’s learned her lesson. No more men.
Silas Harden just lost his second ranch because of a woman. The first deserted him when times got tough. Now he’s had to quit the whole state of New Mexico to avoid a trumped-up shotgun wedding and the noose of matrimony. He’s learned his lesson. No more women.
Belle needs hired hands to move a cattle herd late in the season and there’s no one around but seemingly aimless Silas. She hires him reluctantly.
Silas signed on, glad for the work, though worried about a woman doing such a thing as hiring drovers, only to find out he’s the lone man going with five woman, including a baby still in diapers. After the cattle drive is over, he might as well shoot himself to speed up the process of being embarrassed to death.
Why the author wrote this book:
A woman who needs to be so strong to survive struggles to not also take charge of her marriage. And pick men she can take charge of. Not a good match. Belle has finally met her match.
"A 2009 Christy Award finalist, Mary is fast becoming one of the hottest authors of inspirational fiction. Her books are not to be missed."
