Publisher's Summary

She rode with the most famous outlaws of her time. Then, she vanished.  

In the fall of 1895, Etta Place falls in love with Harry Longabaugh, alias the Sundance Kid. She gives up everything to follow him and his partner in crime, Butch Cassidy, in their outlaw life across the continent and beyond. Breathtakingly beautiful and every inch a lady, Etta can also ride and shoot as well as any man. As their fugitive life begins to crumble, she finds herself alone and living in a convent with her newborn son. Knowing she can’t hide away forever, she moves halfway across the country to begin anew. Etta prays her past won’t catch up with her.

In 1911, Emily Pleasants steps onto the train station platform of Pine Creek, Minnesota, with a teacher’s contract in hand and a secret life she’s fled. A young widow with a small son, she’s searching for a safe place to raise her child where no one will recognize her. She meets Edward Sheridan, a successful merchant and bank owner, who quickly falls for her beauty, intelligence, and kindness. Still, she worries her notorious past will threaten the one thing dearest to her - her son. 

From the deserts of Texas to the sweeping vistas of Wyoming, the refinement of New York City to the lush valleys of Argentina, Etta followed the outlaw men she loved so dearly. Then, she disappeared. 

One woman, two separate lives. What became of the elusive Etta Place?

An Interesting Story

I loved the movie Paul Newman & Robert Redford made back in the 70's ! This story clarifies how Butch, Sundance & Etta's lives really were. A fascinating ending.

Ten star book

I read Miss Etta and loved it so much I bought it on audio. This is one of the best books I've ever read. If you liked the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, you'll love this novel.
