Summary
Constance Kopp doesn't quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding fifteen years ago. One day a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family -- and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared. (Based on the true story of one of America's first female deputy sheriffs.)

Summary
Three sisters take the law into their own hands in this fast-paced, darkly humorous caper set in 1914 New Jersey. When local factory owner Henry Kaufman's motorcar strikes their buggy, the Kopp siblings sue for damages. When that fails, they band together to make Kaufman pay. Pistol-packing Constance, pigeon fancier Norma, and whimsical Fleurette make an oddball trio, but they get results. Amy Stewart (Wicked Plants, The Drunken Botanist) makes her fiction debut in a winning novel inspired by real-life people and events . -- Description by Gillian Speace
