Abigail Frances Forson has everything it takes to prosper in the 1880's in spite of being a woman. She is the match of any man physically. Education requires three years in Chicago. Fortitude helps her survive the death of both parents. Boldness is just the ticket as she relocates from Missouri to Albuquerque, NM. Her patience pays off as she finds a good man - or is he? Her Bible study leads her into many discussions with others and spiritual growth. Finally, a would-be bad man is no match for Abby.
