So what’s it all about? According to LMN:
Strange Empire is a powerful and dynamic drama about three strong and independent women who join forces to seek a new way of life in the perilous and dangerous world of the North American Frontier of the 1860s.
Katherine Loving and her husband Jeremiah are heading west towards a better life. As they begin their journey, they find themselves at a stagecoach depot, where they encounter another couple beginning anew: Rebecca Blithely, a brilliant young woman and unaccredited surgeon with nowhere to practice; and Dr. Thomas Blithely, her husband, who still grieves the loss of his first wife even as he begins an uncomfortable marriage with Rebecca, his much younger ward. Also at Station House is Isabelle Slotter. Her husband, Captain John Slotter, is a powerful and troubled man, who owns and controls everything in Janestown, a mining camp on the US/Canada border.
Slotter plans to build a branch-line railway, forge an empire and make a fortune on the backs of his workers while Isabelle, a ruthless and Machiavellian con-artist, runs what has become a famous house of prostitution.
When Kat and her husband thwart Slotter’s plan to collect two young girls as new whores for his brothel, he is enraged. He and his men masquerade as an “Indian” war party and massacre the men in the wagon train. Under Slotter’s forced suggestion, the vulnerable wives and daughters move to Janestown where they will have few options other than to become whores.
At first Kat, Isabelle and Rebecca appear to have nothing in common.. But as their resistance to Slotter grows and their need for justice increases, the women form a delicate union that will see them take control and lead the town to keep trouble and corruption at bay -- a daily challenge in this dangerous and volatile world.
