Overview

Annie Oakley&;s Wild West Americana and time travel come together in this genre-defying novel that explores trauma and the cost of female revenge.

Ruth McClintock is obsessed with the past. For nearly a decade, she has been studying Annie Oakley, convinced that the legendary sharpshooter experienced a scarring event in childhood that led her to fight for the right of every American woman to own and operate a gun. This fruitless search has cost Ruth her doctorate, a book deal, and her fiancé. But Ruth may finally have the evidence she is looking for. She has managed to hunt down a journal purporting to be a &;true account&; of Oakley&;s midlife struggles, including secret visits to a psychoanalyst and the desire for vengeance against the &;Wolves,&; or those who have wronged her.
 
With the help of Reece, a tech-savvy senior at the local high school, Ruth attempts to establish the journal&;s provenance, but she's begun to have jarring out-of-body episodes that are possibly parallel to Annie's own lived experiences. As she solves Annie&;s mysteries, she also confronts her own, from the reasons behind her teenage sister&;s suicide to a tragedy in her Minnesota town that she may be able to prevent.
