Excerpt from Chapter 10 – “The Boss Lady”:
MAGDALENA SERVED STEAMING, CHICORY-LACED
Mexican coffee to Ken Battle before the meeting with Lady Caroline.
“I’m happy that you will have your own ranch close by, but
Manuel and I will miss you, Mr. Ken. But we are enjoying the
lady from England. She’s a very easy person to work for. She’s
even learning to cook Mexican food and getting pretty good at
it.” This bit of news did not surprise the ranch manager. “The
more I get to know her, the nicer she seems to be,” he replied. A
few minutes before seven o’clock, Lady Caroline and Barney Little
entered the room. Food was served with more coffee, and the
meeting got underway.
