A Claim of Her Own, a new historical fiction novel by Stephanie Grace Whitson is an exciting story about Mattie, a young woman fleeing her past and seeking refuge with her brother who has settled in South Dakota, where he is gold mining. Mattie arrives in Deadwood, and immediately understands what her brother meant in his letter to her, “Walking down the main street in Deadwood is like stepping onto hell’s front porch. It’s frenzied and filthy, and it’s the last place on earth any man would want to bring any woman he cared about.” This town is nothing like what she is used to – most businesses were in canvas tents, the signs made out of old lumber or sheets. The men were filthy, both their language and appearance.

Follow Mattie as she struggles to forget her past and start a new life in this dirty, remote town. Does her secret past catch up with her? And how long will she stay in this dumpy town? Pick up A Claim of Her Own to read about what happens.
