The Survival of Margaret Thomas

The West of the late 1800s is a lonely place. Margaret Thomas lives that loneliness. Alone, after the shooting death of her sheriff husband that she blames on herself and searches for solace in a liquor bottle. Then one day a miracle arrives in a telegram informing her that the bank robber who shot her husband has been arrested. She is invited to the trial.

But that judicial proceeding is all the way across the wild United States and she’s a former easterner now living in Missouri. Margaret must make this journey for her husband’s sake and, if she is ever to live again, assuage the guilt that’s been haunting her since the day he was gunned down.

Ride with Margaret Thomas as she reveals this frightening tale from her point of view. A strong woman and the bloody West meet in this unforgettable epic adventure in the tradition of True Grit.
