About The Trail to Crooked Creek

Everyday heroes who find the courage to believe in extraordinary love.


Two years after the devastations of war left their mark on a country torn apart, Wesley Davenport, a former soldier haunted by his experiences on the battlefield crosses paths with Leah Tennyson, a teacher who helps him heal his emotional wounds—and discovers unexpected love in the most unlikely place.


The Trail to Crooked Creek is a novella set in the breathtaking and sometimes unforgiving landscape of post-Civil War Montana Territory.

"I have adored this series and this one does not disappoint. It was great travelling back to Crooked Creek, Montana and meeting up with Wesley and Leah. I thought it was a beautiful story of overcoming, inspiration, romance, and joy. I loved it." ~Amy Campbell (BookBub Review) on The Trail to Crooked Creek

A note . . .

I knew in my heart that I was not ready to say farewell to my people in Crooked Creek, and even now this won't be the final story in the series. Wesley and Leah became so much more than I anticipated, and their adventures ended quite differently than I had planned. They are both, in a word, beautiful. Beautiful souls and beautiful hearts, albeit a bit bruised and in need of direction to overcome their own tragic pasts.

May you always have a fire to warm your body, a book to warm your mind, hope to warm your soul, and love to warm your heart. I hope you enjoy the book. —MK McClintock

About the Crooked Creek Series

The Crooked Creek Series by MK McClintock

"MK McClintock knows what readers want." ~Readers' Favorite

Set in post-Civil War Montana Territory, in the small town of Crooked Creek, it all started with Emma. Her story was written for a contest, but I soon realized there were more women whose tales needed to be written. The war is over between the North and the South, but the battles at home are just beginning. If you love stories of bravery and courage with unforgettable women and the men they love, you'll enjoy the Women of Crooked Creek. 

The first four stories are available in The Women of Crooked Creek collection.
