In Texas Lily, Elizabeth Fackler has recreated the historical actors of the Lincoln County War, a pivotal event in the development of the western frontier. In 1875, along the Rio Panal in New Mexico Territory, wealthy rancher Emmet Moss proposes marriage to the daughter of an old Texas friend who was recently murdered in the opening act of a conflagration that will soon flare into war.
Sixteen-year-old Lily Cassidy accepts his proposal in the interest of providing for her widowed mother and crippled brother, even though she's in love with Jasper Stone, a young desperado everyone predicts will have a short life.
