Finding Becky is the third book in the series Winds Across the Prairie by Martha Rogers. I read Morning Dove and really enjoyed it better that I did this one. I like the older historical storied better than in the 1900 ones. This one took place in 1905 in the Oklahoma territory before it became a state the the women suffrage movement was in full force.
Rebecca Haynes had just returned home from college in Boston and had a joy in the local newspaper, but she was really into the suffrage movement. She believed that woman should have the right to vote and should be able to get a job and get paid as much as a man. She had a long time beau waiting on her at home but had met a man on the train by the name of Geoff Kensington that was going to her home town, but he didn't look like a cowboy, so what was he going to do there? Rebecca (Becky) started dining and going riding with him, so her beau Rob Frankston the lawyer did not take to that very well. He had always loved her, even when they were children so it had always been his intent to marry her, but she wanted to be independent.
As the story progresses Rebecca get more involved with the newspaper in town that she works for and had gotten away from God. Geoff didn't believe either and on Sunday he would ride our to the Haynes ranch and nosy around so what was he after? He had come to town to buy beef but that had already been taken care of and he was still going out to the ranch to see where the neighbors had tried to farm but nothing would grow so they had sold off their land to the Haynes and two other ranchers, but they had to keep their cattle out from that place as even the water was bad. Bad things begin to happen at the Haynes ranch, cattle were killed and left, their barn had been set on fire, so what was behind all of this? Could it be Geoff, the new man in town or was is someone else?
You need to buy this book and read the continuing series of Winds Across the Prairie.
