Camel Press is proud to announce the release of Heartbreak Trail, by Shirley Kennedy, a fascinating historical romance that unfolds on a wagon train plagued by misfortune., 12/06/2010 - Seattle, WA.—Camel Press is proud to announce the release of Heartbreak Trail (304 pp, $18.95, ISBN: 978-1-60381-831-5), by Shirley Kennedy, a fascinating historical romance that unfolds on a wagon train plagued by misfortune.

1850. Lucy, a pampered New Englander, is dragged by her husband and coldhearted brother-in-law on a wagon train bound for California. The first casualty of the arduous trek is her husband. Lucy longs to return home, but that would mean abandoning her little stepson. How fortunate then that rugged Clint Palance, a former trapper and Indian scout, is watching over them both! As the journey progresses, Lucy faces deprivation, heartache, hardship, and more death. Then, with California just around the bend, Lucy must part from Clint. Will she find him again? Or must she return to a dull life in Boston, forsaking forever the beautiful West she has grown to love?

“Since reading their diaries,” says author Shirley Kennedy, “I am especially fascinated by those pioneer women who gave up comfortable homes to live for months in a covered wagon. Back then you couldn’t dial 911. Their courage in coping with the everyday dangers and hardships was magnificent.”

Shirley Kennedy has published Regency romances for both Ballantine and Signet. Born and raised in Fresno, California, she has lived in Colorado, Texas, California, Bogota (Colombia) and Calgary (Alberta, Canada), where she earned a BS in Computer Sciences.
