“I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely loved this book and I cold not put it down. I especially liked the Oscar Wilde quotes and the events of his own experience with prejudice and persecution, which were the central theme of the novel.
The story is set in 1895 and the main character is Mildred Dunlap, one of the richest women in the small town called Red River Pass,Nevada. She is a tall, masculine women who is in love with her cousin Edra. In an attempt to protect herself and her relationship with Edra, she willingly subjects herself to the gossip ‘hens’ of the town. Discovering an unlikely friendship in the man she uses to accomplish this, Charley, she becomes the main gossip for the town.
I was afraid for Mildred and Edra, I cheered Charley for everything he wanted. He made this story! This is a well-written book that shows and teaches you how others can affect your life. I highly recommend this one for people who can enjoy a really great book! The storytelling was fascinating!”
