The Passion of Dellie O\'Barr

The Passion of Dellie O'Barr

(The fourth book in the McDade Cycle series)
A novel by

Everybody in McDade thought of Dellie O'Barr as "the good little sister." Dellie has always done what her father wanted her to do; she even married the suitor her older sister refused -- an earnest man with a college education, a big ranch and fine house. Dellie has always done the proper thing. Until now.

Out of the blue, she finds herself falling for a man stirring up the countryside with his fiery Populist speeches. Clearly, no good can come of it -- he's an out-and-out rabble-rouser, a man set on disturbing the turn-of-the-20th-century status quo on farms all over Texas. And he's married.

And then, for the love of this man, Dellie tosses aside her own status -- a privileged life and perfect reputation -- and opens herself up to whispers of adultery and disloyalty. Not only that, she's suspected of burning down a local store hostile to her lover and his Populist followers. And when he flees town, she leaves her rich husband to chase after him.

As much about married love as forbidden love, THE PASSION OF DELLIE O'BARR is the story of a singular woman's life and of the lives of the two men she chooses as lovers. One, Andrew Ashland, is a dynamic political crusader. The other, Daniel O'Barr, is the man she leaves behind -- the man who waits for her to come back and stands by her when she returns to the scandalized town of McDade.

This is an exciting tale of passion and human frailty. Cindy Bonner breathes life into a romantic drama of complex, believable men and women set against the backdrop of the Texas history she knows so well.
