Historical fiction readers will be happy to know that Sandra Dallas’s newest novel, “Where Coyotes Howl” is available! The two-street town of Wallace is not exactly what Ellen Webster had in mind in 1916 when she accepted a teaching position in Wyoming. Within a year she has fallen in love with the high plains and a cowboy named Charlie Bacon. Life is not easy in the flat, brown corner of the state where winter blizzards are unforgiving and the summer heat relentless, still Ellen and Charlie face it together, their relationship growing stronger with each shared success and each deeply felt tragedy. “Where Coyotes Howl” is also available on CD and in Libby.
