Forced by injury to quit his job as a laborer at a sawmill, Daniel Burke journeys to a Colorado boom town to apply for the position of dressmaker. The moment he sets eyes on the brass plate affixed to the House of Delilah’s front door, Daniel curses his impulsive decision (and the circumstances which led to his skill at sewing women’s clothing).Before he can leave, he’s intercepted by a whirlwind of a maid who ushers him into the specialized brothel and into the office of the madam, Addy Monroe.
Addy came west on an orphan train at the tender age of fourteen and in her twenty four years in “the business” she has come to see men as nothing more than a means to an end, a way to provide for the women in her employ, and the daughter she sent away to boarding school. Dissatisfied for quite some time, Addy is shaken to the core and blames herself when one of her girls is injured by a wealthy customer, but she is unable to believe Daniel’s assertion that the business sense she acquired the hard way is her ticket to a new world.
What could a naive country boy possibly teach her about life?
