Changing Trains by Cynthia Haseloff, 291 pages, read by Tracy, on 03/30/2013

I found another Western with a female main character. Mari Mashay is a lady gambler who is taking a train from Texas to St. Louis Missouri. She has decided to give up gambling but her past has caught up with her. The train is The Prairie Queen and she is riding in the luxury car. A former beau and several interesting characters also are on board. I enjoyed this story since Mari is also the daughter of a doctor and uses her medical skills to help others. She wants to be independent in a time when women were expected to be married or worked in a saloon.
