Eugenia cooper

I LOVED reading The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y’Barbo. Eugenia wanted a wild west adventure like the hero in her favorite dime novel, and unbeknownst to her family, she escapes to Colorado to find one.

Did she get it?

Yes! That much and more:

A Curly Sue type little girl

A handsome rich man of English nobility

Her very own boots and buckskin jacket with fringe

A train chase

A carriage careening out of control


A scandal

AND a bejeweled chicken

Kathleen Y’Barbo is a masterful story weaver. I loved how she started each chapter with a short excerpt of the dime novel the heroine loved to read!

An extremely entertaining and fun read! Buy your own copy here:

I read stuff like this and I have to wonder why am I even trying to write. My storytelling falls so short when compared to this author’s expertise.
