Why the author wrote this book:

Angela says, "This story is a continuing series for me about the beginnings of the state of Montana. I love sharing the completely crazy and romantic stories of how Montana and her people came to be. In this case, it's true that the women of Montana traveled to Chicago for the 1893 World's Fair and took home seven medals for scientific botany. Putting a fictional romance into that historical truth is pure fun!"
