Known as Silver Peak’s “Antique Lady,” Sadie Speers loves owning and running her shop, the Antique Mine. When her high school sweetheart shows her an old wedding dress he found in his attic, Sadie guesses the dress belonged to her great aunt Rachel Wright, Silver Peak’s famous runaway bride, who was assumed to have died in 1897. But that’s not all Edwin reveals: there’s a hole in the bodice of the dress and a pistol inscribed with the initials of Sadie’s grandfather.
But Sadie isn’t the only one interested in the dress. A woman arrives in Silver Peak, claiming to be Sadie’s cousin, drawn to town by news of the dress. And Wade Marley, a descendant of Rachel Wright’s jilted bridegroom, demands that Sadie turn over the dress to him, as according to legend it contains the fortune Rachel stole from the Marley family when she fled. As Sadie searches for the truth, she must first discover what truly happened to Rachel Wright over 100 years ago…before the past catches up to her.
