About the Book

The year is 1885 and Abigail Peacock is resisting what seems to be an inevitable future—a sensible career as a teacher and marriage to the earnestly attentive local storeowner.

But then she buys a rifle, and everything changes.

This Godforsaken Place is the absorbing tale of one tenacious woman’s journey set against dramatic myths of the Canadian wilderness and the American Wild West. Abigail’s adventure introduces her to some of the most infamous characters of her time—including Annie Oakley and Gabriel Dumont—and brings the high stakes of the New World into startling focus.
