Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The fates of a newly minted lawman, a former prostitute, and the promise of buried gold collide in Kent's (The Traitor's Wife) gripping third novel. Set in Texas in the 1870s, the novel alternates between the lives of Lucinda Carter and Nate Cannon, both of whom are starting over but under vastly different circumstances. After years in a Fort Worth brothel, Lucinda makes her escape—along with a pouch full of silver from the stingy landlady—to the remote outpost known as Middle Bayou, where she's arranged a teaching position while she waits for her mysterious lover. Meanwhile, Nate, an Oklahoma native in his first year as a member of the Texas State Police, is sent to track down two legendary Texas Rangers, Capt. George Deerling and Dr. Tom Goddard, and alert them that William McGill, a killer they've been chasing for years, has struck again. The men form an uneasy trio, with the experienced Rangers unsurprisingly less than ecstatic to be saddled with a greenhorn, though Nate soon proves his worth. In Middle Bayou, Lucinda bides her time, waiting for her lover's arrival and for him to follow through on his promise of a life made rich with pirates' gold hidden near her new home. That Lucinda and Nate's paths will cross is inevitable, but Kent ditches predictable romance for a tense, unsparing look at the price we'll pay to get what we think we want. (Oct.)

Review

"A talented storyteller...[Kent] manages to upend expectations through rich characterizations, historic verisimilitude and a close study of East Texas geography...There are echoes of...Cormac McCarthy, in Kent's bloody novel....But time and again, largely because of the humanizing attention to women and minority characters traditionally given short shrift in historical fiction, Kent manages a fresh take on a tale that could have been just another redundant entry in the Lonesome Dove sweepstakes."―Dan Oko, Texas Observer

"As historically grounded and perhaps more explosive than her first works, this new offering should be great for book clubs, which have always favored Kent."―Barbara's Pick, Library Journal

"A rollicking tale."―Steve Bennett, San Antonio-Express News

PRAISE FOR THE TRAITOR'S WIFE:

"Vivid...Mixing history, love story and suspense, Kent seamlessly blends true events with fiction to bring a fraught, endlessly fascinating period of American history to life."―Joanna Powell, People

"A cinematic but refreshingly unsentimental take on the classic Western, starring a woman who is no romantic heroine, but a definite survivor."―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Kent's novel burns slowly, with polished prose, a gripping plot and characters-particularly smart, independent-minded Martha-who will linger in your mind...A novel of suspense, a love story and a moving portrait of the struggles of the early colonists, The Wolves of Andover is a richly layered tale."―Jay Strafford, Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Beautifully written."―Shawna Seed, Dallas Morning News

"Kathleen Kent has a unique talent for early American storytelling...combines the steadfastness of well-research historical fiction with the organic mien of oral storytelling."―Catherine D. Acree, Bookpage

"Gripping fiction...part historical love story, part thriller set against the well-drawn backdrop of Puritan America."―San Antonio Express-News
