Dude Looks Like a Lady
Set in the late 1800?s in Texas, this book was about a seventeen year old aristocrat who flees an arranged marriage and finds herself on the ranch of an uncle who didn?t know she existed. He assumed, from her name, Sydney, that she was a boy and he sends word that ?he? is welcome, and has no use for women. She arrives dressed as a boy. The men of the ranch set out to make a man out of ?him.?
Her secret eventually comes out, although some women already guessed. In the meantime, she has fallen for the co-owner of the ranch.
She works hard to prove herself as a man, and then again as a woman, who has been pampered her whole life and must fit in if she is to stay in the land she has grown to love.
