A frontier post, an Apache camp, a Mexican silver towneach teach lessons of life and love in Woman of Three Worlds.
Native of the South, Brittany's family and home are destroyed by the Civil War. The heroine travels to Fort Bowie, in Arizona Territory, to become governess of her cousin's children. After befriending an Apache child, captive of the settlers, she is thrown out of the community and goes with the child to live on Soapsud Row. Soon after she is captured by Apaches and carried off to the colonial silver mining town of Alamos, Mexico. There Brittany struggles with the lure of three men and the attraction of three worlds.
