In the shadow of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, fortunes are made and lives lost during the silver boom on the Comstock Lode. In this wild and dangerous era, Rebekah Sinclair, a small town preacher’s daughter, and Rory Madigan, an impoverished Irish immigrant, vow eternal love. In their youthful naiveté, they believe that love can conquer all. They are mistaken. The cunning of an older man and the bigotry of Rebekah’s family tear them apart.


When they meet again, each believes the other broke their covenant. Rory has become a rich, influential man bent on revenge. Rebekah is the desperately unhappy wife of a corrupt politician. Madigan believes he hates her…but he’s never stopped loving her. Rebekah believes she fears him…but she’s never stopped loving him. Although still young, they have lost their innocent illusions and been tempered by the harshness of life in 1870’s Nevada. But are they strong enough to triumph over a ruthless, secret enemy intent on destroying them? Now their love and their very lives, as well as that of a child, hang in the balance.

“I wrote my first twenty-two novels in longhand with a ballpoint pen—it’s hard to get good quills these days,” she says. Dragged into the twenty-first century by her son Matt, a telecommunication specialist, Shirl now uses two of those “devil machines.” Another troglodyte bites the dust. Please visit her at
