“THE LILY OF THE WEST shines the spotlight on a character mostly known as a background character in the telling of the gunfight at the OK Corral. Mary Katherine Haroney is best known as the on-again, off-again companion of Doc Holliday.
“Kathleen Morris masterfully gives a first-person account of a well-educated, independent woman’s journey from the royal courts of Hungary and Mexico to the dance halls of the American West.
“This book is filled with sumptuous language and an interesting cast of characters. If you like historical fiction, you’ll love this book.”
