Overview

NO PLACE FOR NAKED DOWSERS: Even after Civil War decimated Ella Corrigan's revered Georgia plantation, and post-war efforts to revitalize it met with one setback after another, she never dreamed that her new husband, Gentry Garland, would want to leave it all behind and take her and their son to his wild Texas ranch lands. She refuses to go, but Gentry does something that will give her no choice-something that, overnight, turns her love for him into a bitter obsession for revenge. Ella finds Texas in the midst of a killer drought and filled with strange characters that either terrify or revolt her. Among them are the old ex Texas Ranger, foul-mouthed, irreverent, and professed woman hater, Hempstead Grouse; twelve year-old Molly Barton, a victim of incest and ignorance; young Dan Meaney, who would have looked like an innocent schoolboy to Ella upon their first meeting ... if the two 44 colts on his thin hips hadn't contradicted every charitable thought she tried to have of the boy. In Texas, Ella sees her and Gentry's old antagonist, Timon Pledger, in a way she'd never dreamed anyone would ever see the shy, fallen preacher from back home in Savannah-naked as a jaybird, and with a dowser stick clamped to his exposed groin. In constant longing for her family's ancestral plantation, Ella devises a plan to return there someday and reclaim her property; thereby, the wedge between her and Gentry thickens ... threatening the love that both had thought would last forever. Will Gentry's vast herds of Longhorn cattle be the answer to his money problems or will his need to save his land drive him to a danger that will force Ella to a decision that could have disastrous consequences for them both ...
