Gold Digger by Rebecca Rosenberg is an Adult Historical, Western Fiction story based on the true story of “Baby Doe Tabor.”
“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 gripping story of female grit and resilience. BabyDoe has a wonderful, indomitable spirit, and Rosenberg brings her physical and emotional challenges vibrantly to life.” -Historical Novel Society”
If you enjoy reading historical stories set during the American Gold Rush, you will want to take a peek at this drama.
When her life is stripped after a domino of tragic events, she is stuck trying to keep everything, including her life, in line.
It’s also a story about women’s suffrage during this time. You can explore the internal and external struggles that comes with being a women during this time, and her drive to overcome it as best she can.
I gave this one 3 out of 5 stars. It wasn’t necessary a book I would pick up at a bookstore, but it’s one of those stories that leaves you thinking when you’re done!
