Publisher's Summary

Mayme Holloway knows how to keep secrets. Wounded outlaws often call on her medical skills and trust her silence. When Charley Floyd and his wife pay their old friends, Mayme and O.C., a visit, everything changes.

Charley, aka Pretty Boy Floyd, is wanted for killing a lawman. His wounds require more help than Mayme can provide, which forces her to break her silence and seek help from Dr. Joe Stern. While O.C. safely cuts hair at his barbershop, whistling hymns and telling jokes, Mayme and Dr. Stern venture out into the Cookson Hills to treat Pretty Boy Floyd. Over time, Joe and Mayme forge a strong bond as they care for other wounded men. They share dangerous secrets, dangerous lives, dangerous patients, and a dangerous love.

Disappointing :-(

This book has so many great reviews on Amazon so I thought I was going to love it.....but I really didn't. This is a very well narrated, written and detailed story with vivid characters yet somehow I was still very dissatisfied. I think it was plot and the motives of the characters that disappointed me the most. It's very hard for me to get emotionally involved in a story where infidelity is the driving force of the romance and the dishonored spouse is made out to be a buffoon.

I would say so much more but I won't give anything away for those of you who want to give this one a try. I understand that this is based on a true story but it still is not my cup of tea.
