Publisher's Summary

Two decades after the Civil War, Josephine Marcus, the teenage daughter of Jewish immigrants, is lured west with the promise of marriage to Johnny Behan, one of Arizona's famous lawmen. She leaves her San Francisco home to join Behan in Tombstone, Arizona, a magnet for miners (and outlaws) attracted by the silver boom. Though united by the glint of metal, Tombstone is plagued by divided loyalties: between Confederates and Unionists, Lincoln Republicans and Democrats.
But when the silver-tongued Behan proves unreliable, it is legendary frontiersman Wyatt Earp who emerges as Josephine's match. As the couple's romance sparks, Behan's jealousy ignites a rivalry destined for the history books....
At once an epic account of an improbable romance and a retelling of an iconic American tale, The Last Woman Standing recalls the famed gunfight at the O.K. Corral through the eyes of a spunky heroine who sought her happy ending in a lawless outpost - with a fierce will and an unflagging spirit.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Keeping closer to the true facts about the character who was no goodie two-shoes.

What was most disappointing about Thelma Adams’s story?

The sophomoric writing.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Foster?

I don't think it would matter. It pained me to listen but I did suffer the entire story.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Last Woman Standing?

i have no idea.

Any additional comments?

This could have been a great book if the author followed what appears to be the true story of the main character and made her more real. I felt like she wrote the book to appeal to a fifth grade girl.

Good historic fictional account of the woman who loved, and was loved by, Wyatt Earp

It's a story of love, but not a romance novel. Wyatt's story has been told and retold for generations, but Josie's has been left to speculation. Although this is fiction, it seems to have been well researched and stands up to most of the facts as we know them. I fact checked as I listened, and found a treasure trove of photographs, most captured by C.S. Fly the photographer and his wife Mollie, a photographer in her own right, in Tombstone. Interesting story of the woman behind the man.
