Virginia Hull Welch Writes Western Romance CRAZY WOMAN CREEK
Virginia Hull Welch has an imagination as big as the Wyoming sky. Inspired by a road sign in that state, she concocted a back story to explain the intriguing name. Crazy Woman Creek (CreateSpace) is an inspirational western romance set in Wyoming Territory, 1880.
James Rose rode into the unforgiving darkness of the Wyoming prairie one stormy night and did not return. When the rancher's horse is found tied to a tree on the banks of the icy North-East Creek three days later, his wife Lenora insists her beloved is too capable a horseman to slip and fall into a rushing creek. But everyone in the little town of Buffalo believes he drowned.
Not quite everyone. To Deputy Luke Davies, the beautiful widow's account of the events that night provokes more questions than answers. Why is she so sure her husband did not perish in the wilderness? Why is she vague about the events that happened just before he rode off? What is she hiding? And who has been sneaking onto her property at night to harass her, and why?
As time passes, the absence of a body creates difficulties for Lenora; her homestead is threatened and she becomes the chief suspect in the investigation of her husband's disappearance. As wild stories of murder and madness circulate, Luke and Lenora realize their growing attraction for one another. But without a body, Luke is frustrated by desire and Lenora is tortured by doubt. Is she truly a widow, or is her angry husband trying to teach her a lesson as some believe?
