One look at Baby Doe and you know she was meant to be a legend! She was just twenty years old when she came to Colorado to work a gold mine with her new husband. Little did she expect that she’d be abandoned and pregnant and left to manage the gold mine alone. But that didn’t stop her!
She moved to Leadville and fell in love with a married prospector, twice her age. Horace Tabor struck the biggest silver vein in history, divorced his wife and married Baby Doe. Though his new wife was known for her beauty, her fashion, and even her philanthropy, she was never welcomed in polite society.
Discover how the Tabors navigated the worlds of wealth, power, politics, and scandal in the wild days of western mining.
A few pages into the book and you’re enraptured by the extraordinary story of Lizzie “Baby Doe” Tabor.
Rebecca Rosenberg has penned an absorbing portrait of an unconventional, resilient woman, relentless in pursuing her goals. It’s impossible to not be fascinated by this novel, since the author has described a compelling main character with an outstanding written style.
As the story progresses, I’ve noted how well-researched it sounded and how vivid the descriptions looked, and all the things together have made this a superb novel to my eyes; an interesting chapter of the Colorado story that with her talent, Rebecca has fantastically brought back to life. So, I’m very excited there will be a sequel to Gold Digger, and I’m happy to recommend this novel.
Thank you to the author and Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for bringing this novel to my attention and for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
