In the middle of a snow storm Jess and her Aunt delivered a stillborn that took the life of Uncle David's wife.

Weather, Digger and Hutch two Bluegrass long hunters she met, and Indians made her trip very difficult. She reached the Bluegrass on her own and with her neighbor's help she builds her cabin. Then she shared her secret with them. Digger and Hutch returned to the Bluegrass. Hutch found Jess is Jessica and their friction continued. Bandit and Outlaw, Jess' coons added pranks to her life. David and his party arrived, Jess takes in Lightfoot's runaway sister Fawn, then James and Katherine joined the village near Fort McClelland. Jess' life is filled with work, love, Indian raids, death, new life, accidents, nature's elements, and their camaraderie. Hutch and Jess were to be married when he returned from selling their furs in New Orleans. Illinois Indians captured Hutch an hour before the wedding.

For Kindle lovers, it looks as though it is available in this form as well.
I know several writers who found a publisher before they found an agent, but you can find both agents and publishers in the latest edition of Writer's Market. Another good book is "Give'Em What They Want" by Camenson & Cook. Oh, and "The First Five Pages" by: Noah Lukeman. Most of my reading revolves around research lately, but I did find time to read Jim Butcher's Storm Front and Tonya Hurley's Ghostgirl last week. :)
