wife in this valley and wouldn’t never have cause to know such skills” The year was 1885Jessilyn Harney fancied the notion of being a Straight Eye Shooter Her bother Noah Harney was 5 years older He and their Pa was always arguing until one day Noah simply boltedafter hitting his own pa in the eye Noah said he was sorry to his younger sister but couldn’t take it any The siblings didn’t see each other for the next 5 years But with her brother gone Jessilyn thought what other choice did she have but to get married She rode her horse Ingrid to town and went straight to the sheriffs office first Jessilyn now 17 years old told Sheriff Younger that her pa sent her to inuire about marriage While at the sheriffs office Jessilyn discovered that Noah was a wanted man for crimes he had done There was a 300 reward for anyone who could find him dead or alive Jessilyn planned on bringing her brother back alive herself So Jessilyn rode off on her horse IngridHer Pa had passed She disguised herself as a boybinds her chestdeepens her voice and learned to walk with a male swagger At times she even smeared charcoal to her face and hands to better conceal her age She then started going by the name JesseLatershe took a fake last name too Jesse Montclair So JessilynJesse did what she needed to do to survive There were plenty of saloons in a town call Pearlsville that she came to the biggest city she ever saw Jesse put her best skills to work Men in every saloon she rode to one after the next would be willing to gambleJesse bet the old geezers that they couldn’t shoot their empty liuor bottle from ten paces The men were always confident they could but Jesse was a kid to reckon with In three days she made twenty six dollars money she’d had owned her entire life She had enough money to buy herself a meal After awhile though word spread about Jesse No one would bet against “the kid with the slashes on his face” any longer Things turn violent at times for one reason or another Jesse could crack the chin of a patron with the butt of her pistol as easy as you and I brush our teethShe took some blows herself at times backs of her knees or a beating enough to crack a rib but one thing never happened Jessilyn via Jesse was never once rapedRefreshing in itselfEngrossing adventure and so many different types of folksIndians whites blacks Mexicans Frenchman women kids Boy peddlers offering whiskey bottles for a dime Others shouting about rides in their horses and wagons What amazed Jesse is she had never seen so many rich people in her life until arriving in the city of Pearsville Ladies with two foot feathers blooming from their hats Men who dangled watches from gold chains and wore shiny boots As far as her brother Noahthe price of his corpse was rising He was worth 10000 to the lawmen now Jesse would tear down posters faster than the sheriffs office put them up Her brother’s name appeared in the local papers He was blamed for holdups in different states on the same day but Jesse noticed those papers never said anything about the possibility that Noah being blamed for crimes he didn’t commit I was wondering myself at that point When Jesse wanted to become a militiaman a guardsman said Jesse needed army experience Shehe told the truth ha not about her sexual identity but that she had no army experienceIt was going to take some effort to even be allowed to see the Governor who could decide if Jesse Montclair could become a militant work for the government Well that was ‘fine shooting’ was all it took The Governor was impressed Even though this book is a western not usually my first choice genre there are so many touching moments One of those moments was when I felt a closeness that uickly developed between the Governor and Jesse My heart started to break because after months of surviving on her own essentially almost forgetting herself that she ‘was’ a female it was the first release from loneliness I felt ‘for’ her I was reminded how valuable the intimacy friendship of another human being was as vital as food is for starvation Butmy heart breaks later again with different feelingsI’m reminded how rare it is to find ‘life long’ true friendship relationshipsI can’t give any spoilers but as the journey continues to the end things get complex scary adventures betrayals disappointing moments too We meet other minor interesting charactersbutit’s our feelings for Jessilyn that continues to grow There is a little predictably in the storytelling but it doesn’t matter Jessilynand the language narration is what makes this book specialthe writing d r a w s you in right away I see film possibilities🎬📽🎞45 stars Thanks Angela for planting the seed for me to pick this book Memorable one
