Lilly . . .
In a Land Filled with Promises
She Reached for the Rainbow and the Stars . . .
Yearning to leave an impoverished life in Scotland, beautiful, bewitching Lilly Brannigan took a desperate passage to America: sailing with a group of Mormon converts to the promised land. From the ordered streets of an Illinois settlement to the lawless Rocky Mountains, her search would be for fulfillment and desire, her path the tumultuous course only a deeply feeling woman would dare to follow.
She first found passion in the arms of handsome Chase Mitchell. Nothing could make her doubt his promise to love her forever . . . until he rode away without a trace. But heartbreak could not keep Lilly from her dreams.
Journeying westward, she linked her life, but not her heart, to others. She sang -- and used her glorious voice to win fame and a fabulous business empire in a wild and woolly mining town. And she lived her life with vision and courage -- even when a deeply buried secret threatened to destroy everything she had, and the memory of the man she loved, hated, and could never forget haunted her . . .
