Fallen Women

Sandra Dallas has written many popular books including the New York Times Best Seller Prayers for Sale. In Fallen Women, the reader will experience life for a woman in 1885, old west Denver, Colorado.

Beret Osmundsen  has gotten word that her younger sister has been killed in a brothel. Overcome with questions, Beret travels from her home in New York to Denver to get answers and help in the investigation.  Beret is a gutsy woman, standing well on her own in a man's world.  Sandra Dallas weaves a story which  gets us hungering for the facts. For instance, "What caused the estrangement of the two sisters prior to the murder?"  "How did sister Lilly end up in a brothel, an experienced prostitute?"  and, "Who did kill Lilly?"

Fallen Women is an excellent read. I found it highly enjoyable and will read more of Sandra Dallas in the future!
