Excerpt from Chapter 3 – “The Triple R Ranch”:
LADY CAROLINE MORELY WAS FILLED with anticipation
as her departure for America drew close. Now settled in her London
townhouse, she pored over the Triple R ranch report twice
before returning the document to its heavy cowhide briefcase.
The ranch brand was embossed on the case. She enjoyed reading
Mr. Battle’s report, which raised many questions that would have
to wait until she visited the ranch. Though familiar with several
English farming estates, the thought of a half million-acre ranch
was beyond her ability to absorb. Adding the herds of cattle and
horses only contributed to the definition of large.
