I am Mrs. Jesse James
The long, bloody Civil War is finally at an end when Zee Mimms, the dutiful daughter of a Missouri preacher, is tasked with nursing her cousin, Jesse James, back to health after he suffers a near-fatal wound. During Jesse's long convalescence, the couple falls in love, but Jesse's resentment runs deep. He has scores to settle. For him, the war will never be over.
Zee is torn between deferring to her parents' wishes and marrying for security or marrying for love and accepting the hard realities of life with an outlaw - living under an assumed name and forever on the run. For her, the choice she makes means the war is only beginning.
Releases August 28, 2018. Now available on pre-order.
