Go West for Luck Go West for Love
Part One Benjamin Harrison Johnson heads west. He encounters fire, drenching rain, a cougar, and the most beautiful Palomino stallion he has ever seen. Four things change his life: meeting Jimmy Two Feathers who is searching for his twin sister; winning a ramshackle homestead in a poker game; learning that a young boy, Joseph, comes with it; and discovering oil on the property. Outlaws, the feisty young daughter of his housekeeper, and other characters bring drama and adventure to the Six Bar Ranch. Part Two Olivia, renowned horse trainer and heir, flees the Six Bar Ranch after a tragic accident, and spends seven years in a convent in Italy. Friends persuade her to get back in the game and prepare a horse for the Olympics. She ends up unconscious on a private island where she is cared for the most beautiful man she has ever seen, but whom she will only ever know as John. She cannot resist his gentle touch, soft kisses, and the intimacy of such an idyllic, romantic setting. But her simple convent life draws her back to Italy, where John unexpectedly shows up. From that point on, her life takes one dramatic turn after another. Will she return to the Six Bar Ranch?
About Mardie W. Schroeder (San Diego, California Author)
Grew up in Shorewood, WI. Lived in New York, Los Angeles, London, Rome and now San Diego.
Began writing her memoirs late in life. Then an idea wouldn't let her sleep at night so she began her novel. She called on her experiences as a horse person, participating in horse drives, cattle roundups and wilderness pack trips in the first part of the book and brought in her experience living in Rome in the second part.
A vivid imagination played a big part in her writing as well as her love of drama.
