REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:

Lily Ross soon finds herself the sheriff in her small Ohio mining town – just days after her husband – the former sheriff is murdered. As she looks into his death, she meets Marvena Whitcomb, a coal miner’s widow with a questionable past. As the two women dig into the murder, it only becomes more confusing and dangerous.

Based on a true story of the first Ohio woman sheriff, The Widows is a powerful tale of corruption in the coal mining and Prohibition era. The two women from very different backgrounds, come together – however unwillingly – to bring justice to a town that is reeling from shaft collapses killing miners, and control over illegally produced moonshine. With her strong characters and vivid imagery, Jess Montgomery brings you to the American Frontier; The Widows is a great American fiction.
