The wait for a prequel to the "Rancher's Daughters" series is OVER!  And it's OVERTIME.

A girl doesn’t wind up naked in a Kansas creek bed without asking herself the tough questions. If the first one is “Who am I,” she’s in for a rough time… or maybe the wrong time completely! 

Despite the reluctant help of an 1870s trail-boss, “Lillabit” finds only contradictions. Though she’s guileless, her language shocks Texas cowboys. Though independent, she can’t rein a horse. She’s smart, but not about “current” events. And her dreams feature elevators, electricity, plumbing—and impossibility.  

Something awful has happened. So as Lillabit acclimates to the slow, steady world of an Old West cattle drive, is she really finding herself? Or is she, just maybe, losing worlds more than her memory?

for more about OVERTIME 
THE PRINCESS OF CLEVES isn't   my book, only my abridgement. It was written in the 1600's by one Madame de LaFayette. However, I teach it during my World Lit 2 class, and students were struggling. So I took the two different public domain translations and a French version (thank you Babel Fish!), and I abridged and modernized it for the casual reader. Click on the book to see it on Amazon.com
I know the truth now:  I'm not from around here!

Amnesia was easier.

Stranded in 1870s Dodge City, Lillabit remembers: She's Elizabeth Rhinehart, a modern woman thrown back in time against her will.

Also? Someone may be out to kill her.

Her only hope of returning home lies with a trio of scientists in Colorado. To get there, Elizabeth needs safe passage with someone she can trust...  someone like the no -nonsense trail boss who first rescued her from the desert. But even if Jacob Garrison lets her rejoin his cattle drive toward Wyoming--once he learns her secrets, will he let her go home? Will she want to?

"And we lived happily ever--uh oh." 

Time traveler Elizabeth, aka “Lillabit,” hardly expects miracles from her 19th-century marriage. But abandoning her modern world or love of an 1870s trail boss is hard enough without stampedes. 

And storms. 

And Indians.. 

And bounty hunters. 

Is the struggle to adapt worth it if she loses herself en route to Wyoming? Or will that prankster, Time, rob Lillabit of home and family forever?
