Description
When orphaned Annie Paxton and her brothers strike out on their own, they see an ad for the Pony Express that seems to answer their prayers: "Wanted," it reads, "Young, skinny fellows not over eighteen. Must be expert riders and willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred." Without hesitation, Annie becomes a cook at Clearwater Ranch, a station along the Pony Express route, and the boys become Express messengers. Annie soon attracts the interest of two men, and is both flattered and baffled by their attention. One is a refined, dashing lieutenant. The other, a rugged ranch owner. When a routine Express mission goes awry, Annie must intervene. Racing on a moonlit adventure, she'll have to learn how to trust her instincts and follow her heart, even if she's conflicted about which way it's leading her.

display_description "Bestselling author Stephanie Grace Whitson's latest historical novel features an adventurous young heroine who joins the Pony Express. Orphaned Annie Paxton and her brothers may have lost the only home they've ever known, but they're determined to make a better future in St. Joseph, Missouri. Annie dreams of a pretty house with window boxes, and having friends, and attending church every week. But then her brothers spot the ad for a new venture called the Pony Express. "Wanted," it reads, "Young, skinny fellows not over eighteen. Must be expert riders and willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred." Sure enough, both her brothers land jobs as Express messengers, and Annie puts her dreams on hold to work as a cook at Clearwater Ranch, a station along the Pony Express route. Annie struggles to adapt to her new job--work made all the more challenging when she has so many to feed and few ingredients. The gruff station owner, George, doesn't seem inclined to make her life any easier, or at least not at first. But slowly a friendship builds between them. When Annie attracts the attention of a refined, dashing lieutenant from the nearby fort, she'll have to learn how to trust her instincts and follow her heart, even if she's conflicted about which way it's leading her.
