Review: The Lily of the West, from Western Writers of America's Roundup Magazine

Very proud and happy about this review from Roundup’s April 2019 Issue. Authors thrive on good reviews . . . to paraphrase Sally Field: “You like me, you really like me”! Thanks, WWA.

Inspired by her find of the final resting place of Mary Katherine Haroney in Prescott, Arizona, Kathleen Morris wrote her first historical novel. An orphaned young Kate left her home in Davenport, Iowa, stowed away on a Mississippi riverboat and forged her way across the American frontier. This novel of Kate's life, written in first person, is based on historical research, letters and the author's excellent imagination. I was moved to tears many times by the story of Kate's love for Doc Holliday and impressed by the vivid detail with which the author painted the story of star-crossed lovers. A new take on the O.K. Corral, from a woman's point of view. -- Roundup Magazine, Western Writers of America
