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.

Tombstones was no place for woman Mama said.

The story of a beautiful jewish woman reaching for an adventure by moving to Tombstone AZ during the silver mining boom to marry her fiancé. This historical novel is entertaining because life in the west had characters like Wyatt Earp. Survival in the wild west for Josephine was a contest between being beautiful and learning who tells the truth. Love is sometimes blind and that can lead you down a path to hardship and betrayal. Beauty and wit saves her when she meets a lawman named Wyatt.
