Description
"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 adolescence 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 psychologist Josef Breuer and the desire for vengeance against the "Wolves," or the men 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 begins to have out-of-body episodes that she soon believes to be time travel, taking her through Annie's lived experiences. As she solves Annie's mysteries, she also confronts her own, from the reasons behind her teenage sister's suicide to visions of a tragedy in her Minnesota town that she might be able to prevent"--,Provided by publisher.
