1878, Colorado. When Lizzie Doe’s family loses everything in a fire, the twenty-year-old is forced to marry and go west to prospect a gold mine in Colorado, to send money home to her parents. Miners, unaccustomed to such delicate beauty, nickname her Baby Doe, after a newborn deer.
But Baby Doe proves herself tougher than they imagine when she finds herself abandoned, pregnant and running the mine alone. Her pluck gains the admiration of Silver King Horace Tabor, married and twice her age. In Horace Tabor, Baby Doe finds devotion and true passion. When scandal and economic ruin threatens Tabor’s life, Lizzie makes a painful choice.
Baby Doe Tabor was a real-life, deeply complex heroine, rising and falling and rising again with beguiling grit.
A Note From the Publisher
“Rosenberg’s rollicking Western adventure strikes gold with a gutsy, good-hearted spitfire of a heroine and action aplenty.”
—THELMA ADAMS, bestselling author of Bittersweet Brooklyn and The Last Woman Standing Gold Digger tells the true story of Lizzie
“Baby Doe” Tabor, a beautiful young woman who in 1878 marries the son of a wealthy miner in order to save her family from penury. Shrewd and stubborn, Lizzie fights back-biting Victorian society, wins and loses vast fortunes, and bests conniving politicians in her larger-than-life story. A twisting tale worthy of Mark Twain, with a big-hearted heroine at the center.
