BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Heart of the West by Carolyn Twede Frank


Independent-minded women are considered highly unsuitable in Kate Donahue's wealthy Long Island society. Yes, Kate would lead a proper life should she marry, but her dream of practicing medicine would surely be thwarted by her domineering fiance. To follow her dream, she must take dramatic measures. So when she reads a newspaper and seeking a qualified small-town physician, Kate embarks on a new life in the Wild West.

Upon her arrival in the rugged settlement of Craig, Colorado, Kate is disappointed to discover that even in the West, no one wants a woman doctor. As she struggles to establish her practice, she is kept busy fending off the unwanted attentions of a local rancher, a man unnervingly reminiscent of the ex-fiance she left behind in New York. Romantic entanglements are the last thing on Kate's mind. That is, until she meets Lucas McCurdy, an Irish immigrant with whom she feels an undeniable connection. But when their relationship inflames a dangerous land battle, Kate and Lucas find themselves defenseless in a lawless town—a perilous position that may cost them everything.


An entertaining account of a courageous woman who sets out to find a life where she can be herself.  As a medical doctor, she's finding it difficult to find people willing to let her treat them.  But she's determined to succeed.  She's also not particularly interested in getting married especially after one bullying fiance.  But the heart likes to do its own thing sometimes, and Kate finds herself interested in one Lucas McCurdy.  But she isn't fully prepared for the trouble this causes in an already precarious situation with cattle ranchers on one side and sheep farmers on the other.  Frank has written an entertaining and enlightening book about life as a female doctor on the western frontier.
