Life may have been hard on Addie French, but when she meets friendless Emma Roby on a train, all her protective instincts emerge. Emma's brother is seeing her off to Nalgitas to marry a man she has never met. And Emma seems like a lost soul to Addie-someone who needs Addie's savvy and wary eye. It isn't often that Addie is drawn to anyone as a friend, but Emma seems different somehow. When Emma's prospective fails to show up at the train depot, Addie breaks all her principles to shelter the girl at her brothel, The Chili Queen. But once Emma enters Addie's life, the secrets that unfold and schemes that are hatched cause both women to question everything they thought they knew. With Sandra Dallas's trademark humor, charm, and pathos, The Chili Queen will satisfy anyone who has ever longed for happiness.
The Chili Queen is the winner of the 2003 Spur Award for Best Western Novel.
Award-winning author Sandra Dallas was dubbed "a quintessential American voice" by Jane Smiley, in "Vogue Magazine." She is the author of "The Bride's House," " Whiter Than Snow," "Prayers for Sale" and "Tallgrass," among others. She is the recipient of the Women Writing the West Willa Award and the two-time winner of the Western Writers of America Spur Award. For 25 years, Dallas worked as a reporter covering the Rocky Mountain region for "Business Week," and started writing fiction in 1990. She lives with her husband in Denver, Colorado.
"Dallas's sixth ... is as satisfying as a John Ford movie, with just the right touches of humor and period detail."--"Kirkus Reviews""" "Dallas weaves a beguiling plot and creates engaging characters and dialogue.... The zesty, offbeat charm of life among these undesirables in the seedy West keeps this tale moving smartly."--"Publishers Weekly"
