Book Summary: Beyond Sand Creek Bridge by Scott Wyatt

“1882. Northern Pacific Railroad Camp, Idaho Territory… The body of Sheriff Roger Langston is found beneath the Sand Creek Bridge. Chinese railroad worker Wong Hok-Ling is charged with murder days after the unexpected arrival of his fiancée, Mei-Yin, who has escaped her unscrupulous father and stowed away aboard a ship bound for America. Jason McQuade, the territory's newest lawyer, must defend the accused, but after encountering the beautiful Mei-Yin how far is he willing to go--what sacrifices will he make--to save his client's life?” –Goodreads
