Battle of the Sexes.
By Barbara Bretton.
This is a western historical. It shows us just how idiotic men can be. That includes the hero of this story. Who is nothing like a hero until nearly the end.
Caroline is leaving Boston and her boring life there,to claim an inheritance in the wild western town of Silver Spur.
The men of Silver Spur have heard there is a lot of spinsters coming to town with marriage in mind. This terrifies them so much they decide to organize a single man protection league. To save themselves from the women.
When Caroline gets to Silver Spur she is told that her father lost the property on a hand of cards. Jesse tells her that the property is his, and there is no place for her.
Caroline has the deeds for the property so moves herself and the rest of the women in. She is determined to wait for the law to settle the ownership. With the men making things as difficult as possible,and a jealous Madam with a dangerous secret, it is quite a battle.
This is a very amusing story. I wanted to batter all the men, they were so cruel to the women. Cowards the lot of them. All good fun.
