Mr B's review

After the death of her father, Jess sets out to find her outlaw brother. But, feeling vulnerable and alone, she goes dressed as a man, her hair shorn and her breasts bound. Larison’s novel is full of surprises and is hugely relevant to our time. It’s a tender, moving story about one young woman’s search for identity and meaning in a man’s world – with added gunfights, sieges, wild horses, sharp shooting and plenty of whiskey.

Description

In the spring of 1885, seventeen-year-old Jessilyn Harney finds herself orphaned and alone on her family s homestead. Desperate to fend off starvation and predatory neighbours, she cuts her hair, binds her chest, saddles her beloved mare, and sets off across the mountains to find her gun-slinging fugitive brother Noah and bring him home. A talented sharpshooter herself, Jess s quest lands her in the employ of the territory s violent, capricious governor, whose militia is also hunting Noah ^ dead or alive.
