Comstock Rose

  • Jan 28, 2008
I have a new favorite fiction writer. I recently read Divine Diva by Catherine MacDonald and absolutely loved this empowering Chit Lit story. So when I came across another novel from Ms. MacDonald, Comstock Rose, I was eager to see how the author would do with historical fiction. I was not disappointed!

Comstock Rose is the story of Rose O'Conner. Rose was raised in a wealthy family who disowned her when she got pregnant by (and married) Ian O'Conner. Unfortunately, life with Ian was even worse than the scenario that Rose's mother had told the young girl. Ian was an abusive drunk who gambled most of their money away.

Due to Ian's loud mouth, gambling debts, and get rich quick schemes, the pair moved around a lot. This is how they came to Virginia City, a rough mining town. It was here that Rose's life would take a very strange turn. A mining accident took Ian's life. Deep in debt, with the worst kind of men, Rose needed to find a job in a town where the only positions for women were as ladies of the evening. As they say, where there's a will there's a way and Rose is a very strong woman.
