FOREWORD REVIEWS, 2nd place Bronze, General Fiction 2017: A unique portrait of a time and place populated by fearless people, this reimagination of an uncommon woman is powerful. - 5 stars


PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: In this eloquent novel, Stein portrays the independent, eccentric, and resilient woman known as Baby Doe, a legendary figure from Colorado's silver boom. Elizabeth "Lizzie" McCourt Doe is a renowned beauty who moved from Wisconsin to Colorado in the 1870s so that her husband, Harvey Doe, could work in the silver mine that they partially owned. Confronted with his addictions and womanizing, Lizzie divorces Harvey. He heads home to Wisconsin, but she stays in Colorado out of shame and embarrassment. What later begins as an affair with Horace Tabor, a married silver magnate 30 years her senior, eventually turns into a loving marriage with two daughters. Though they are tremendously wealthy, the couple is shunned socially, and a financial crisis soon wipes out their fortune. As Lizzie's problems mount, she becomes reclusive, living alone in a cabin with her visions--holy images and complex dreams from her past, revealed to readers in a lyrical, meditative voice. Stein's blend of love story, scandal, and mystical experience is satisfying and entertaining.

From the Back Cover

At long last we get to hear Baby Doe's compelling side of the hurtful tale that made her the most hated woman in the West.  Donna Baier Stein has captured young Lizzie's Doe's agency in her first marriage, as well as older Lizzie's Tabor's deep spiritual resilience during her decades of isolation.Through Stein's artistry, Baby Doe's story makes the heart ache. --Judy Nolte Temple, BABY DOE TABOR: THE MADWOMAN IN THE CABIN

With The Silver Baron's Wife, Donna Baier Stein pulls off that most difficult of novelistic feats: breathing fictional life into historic characters and situations. From the dark, unpropitious, and dismal depths ofBaby Doe Tabor's biography, she mines a vein of pure silver. -- Peter Selgin, THE INVENTORS

Donna Baier Stein paints a heartfelt, poignant picture filled with loving details of Baby Doe's celebrated life that lingers long after the last page is turned.--Ann Parker, THE SILVER RUSH MYSTERY SERIES 
 
Explosive, gripping andromantic... An absorbing read about a fiercely independent woman who charted her own course only to find herself paying the price.--Talia Carner, HOTEL MOSCOW

With sumptuous, tactile prose,  rich historical detail, and an evocative recreation of the American West, The Silver Baron's Wife excavates the legend of Elizabeth McCourt Tabor to expose a character's humanity and soul.--Diane Bonavist, THE CATHARS

...a beautiful and absorbing novel, rich in history and vivid period detail...This is a moving and memorable book.--Ronna Wineberg, SEVEN FACTS THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE
