What the Fans Say

This story is imagined so well that it could actually be her life - in fact, I wish it was a true story. This book is about as close to perfection as it gets for me. A little bit of suspense and intrigue, a good solid love story (without too much sappiness), and a deep character study. Read it. You'll love it, even if you think the Wild West holds no interest for you. This is a story about a woman's life, and a fascinating one at that. But plan wisely, you'll be reading late into the night!

Kolpan took a few bits of what is actually known of Etta Place, combined it with extensive historical research, and created one of the best books I've read in a long time...You need not have seen the 1969 movie to appreciate the fine storytelling in Etta.

Fact or fiction? Who cares.This is a well-paced, factually-based novel that holds onto the reader and doesn't let loose until the final scene. The story, set in the early 20th century Wild West, as well as New York City, Philadelphia and Central/South America, is written in such a way that the reader will be fascinated by the characters long after the end of the book.

Beware! If you pick this one up to read, it will suck you in and not let you go until the very last page.

This book knocked me off my feet..."Etta" has amazing characters (both the historical and fictional), a beautiful story, great action AND romance, descriptions that made me long for the desert again and prose that will make you wish every event was true.
