Beschreibung:

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Drunken Botanist comes an enthralling novel based on the forgotten, true story of one of the US's first female deputy sheriffs.Constance Kopp doesn't quite i t the mould. 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 from the city to the country fifteen years before. When a powerful, ruthless factory owner runs down their buggy, a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their farm. The sheriff enlists her help, and it turns out that Constance has a knack for outwitting (and disarming) the criminal element, which might just take her back out into the world and onto a new path in life.Through Amy Stewart's exuberant storytelling, Constance Kopp catapults from a forgotten historical anecdote to an unforgettable historical-fiction heroine - an outsized woman not only ahead of her time, but sometimes even ahead of ours. PRAISE FOR AMY STEWART'A tongue-in-cheek fable of feminist empowerment Often funny, and always likeable, Girl Waits With Gun is as offbeat and original as its heroine.' The Sunday Times'[Constance Kopp] is a likeable heroine in a breezy romp, which is thrilling and amusing in equal measure.' The Sunday Herald Sun
