Fleur goes home to Gold Dust City, a frontier town reconstruction, where her parents have been coping with her sister, where she avoids her longtime suitor remembering the kiss of a ""black stranger"" at a college masquerade ball, where there's been some sabotage, and where Bill Brown, looking for the mother who abandoned him in infancy, is none other than. . . . All in the ""Do I care,"" ""Do I dare to"" language of the rustproof romance.
