Gamblers Widow, the sequel to Texas Widow, is the story of Johanna Bauers sister, Maggie DuPree. The widow of a gambler, Maggie travels to West Texas to care for her ailing sister. She meets Cavalry Captain Chance Richards. Maggie has been told she cannot have children, but their brief affair results in a surprise pregnancy. In a series of events, Maggie relearns the lessons of rejection, heartbreak and sacrifice. Gamblers Widow offers a glimpse of Army life on the frontier, the war between the white man and the Indian, and the courage of the men and women who settled the West.


Professional Reviews

Elysa Hendricks
In her book GAMBLER'S WIDOW Mary Lou Hagen has crafted a compelling story of the Old West.

When widow Maggie DuPree travels to West Texas to help her ailing sister she encounters a world of excitement, danger and an unexpected romance with a dashing cavalry officer Captain Chance Richards. Through the eyes of European immigrants eager to create a new life for themselves and Indians desperate to hold onto their way of life the reader is swept back to a time when this country was both old and new. Ms Hagen presents the defeats and the victories, the heartbreak and the joys, as well as the challenges and the rewards of life on the Western frontier in a realistic yet personal way. I highly recommend it.
