Blood will be spilled. Lives will be lost. Fortunes will be made. Men will be ruined.

It's 1865, and the war is over. Mrs. Lily Bell is a newly widowed woman trying to survive in a man's world. Partnered with the indomitable Mr. Thomas Durant, her husband, Robert Bell, had been working to make the dream of a transcontinental railroad a reality. After his death, Lily continues to wrestle with the idea of the railroad being the end of the West. She feels a connection to the pristine landscape and worries that the approaching railroad and Hell On Wheels will despoil the West forever. However, what starts out as a desire to fulfill her husband's dream ultimately becomes her own, and she slowly gains respect in a world where even the toughest of men would fail.

"You don't know who I am or what I'm capable of."

Lily is a young woman between the ages of twenty-five and thirty-five, with curly blonde hair and sharp, clear eyes. She is well-educated and speaks with a cultured English accent. She is of medium height and build, and wears the garb common to women of the 1860s — long-sleeved, high-collared blouses, and heavy ankle-length skirts. Winsome but slightly guarded, she has a sharp wit and a soft voice, and gives off the aura of a woman well in control of her own self.
