Being a news editor myself i thoroughly enjoyed the historical information endorsed in the novel about the various printing and publishing techniques. The idea of special edition was very innovative. As for the characters, it was easy for me to imagine them because the author has given a detailed portray of every character. I enjoyed the romance between Johnny Henry and Kathleen. The harmony between a red headed, educated, talented and smart women with intellect to that of a Brave Cowboy with th ...more
I think this is only the second of Garlock's books that I have read. She does a good job with depression era middle America stories. This is the story of Kathleen Dolan who comes to Rawlings, Oklahoma in 1938 to be a partner in a newspaper. She meets Johnny Henry, our handsome half Cherokee hero on the way into town. Kathleen is quite spirited and independent for the era. The town doctor has everyone under his thumb and something ugly is afoot. Garlock manages to combine the innocence of the rom ...more

Part of a series. I really enjoyed the first two books. This one was also good but not as good as the others. The characters were just as developed. The plot just didn't hold my interested as well. It was a quick read it was a mystery and a romance. At some places you were engaged but others fell short. I'm giving it 3 stars as it wasn't as good to me as the ones I gave 4 stars. I rarely give 5 stars to romance novels.
Felt like I was back in the thirties. Vivid, well written
Man this just did not cut it for me it was putting me to sleep.
I found it a lil boring could be that this type of book and just gidn' t see eye to eye wish it would have been good but to me it was totaly boring.
Great Series of books about the Henry's & the Perry's!!! I enjoyed all 4 books, and this was a great book 3 leading into book 4! Worth Reading.
A mystery love story and I enjoyed reading about Kathleen and Johnny Henry. Pre-world war II
