What is the cost of living life on your own terms? For a young woman on the American Frontier, the price can be high.
Aislynn Maher trusted the wrong man. To conceal her disgrace, she abandons her job, her home, her family and friends. She turns to the raw, contentious US marshal of the Wyoming Territory, Orrin Sage, who is hiding a guilty secret of his own.
Setting out alone, Aislynn brings her optimism and determination to Cheyenne. But in this rough town, with its prejudice, violence and lawlessness, it’s not just difficult to do what you believe is right – it’s potentially deadly.
This unlikely love story details real triumphs and tragedies from frontier women’s letters, diaries and newspapers of the day, and places Aislynn in the center of their history. Embrace the Wind illuminates an intimate picture of the American frontier, the story of the women who changed the West and helped forge the freedoms we enjoy today.

In 2011, I published the novel FAR AWAY HOME about a young woman who left New York City in 1868 to start a new life in Utah. Up to that time, most of my writing focused on professional journals and texts. When I ventured into fiction, I wrote short stories. One story received honorable mention in a NOW short story contest and was published in Creative Woman.
The novel FAR AWAY HOME began as a chapter for a college history book. I conducted my research in the American west for three years; I even drove a covered wagon (check out the Youtube video on the FAR AWAY HOME page at www.susandenningauthor.com). When the history book project dissolved, I used my research to write an historical novel.
As a self-published, unknown author, I never imagined anyone would read FAR AWAY HOME. But tens of thousands of readers did. For four years, it ranked among the Top 100 in the Historical- US and Romance Western categories. To my great surprise, many readers requested the next chapter of the story. In EMBRACE THE WIND, Aislynn’s journey continues.
