Talk about Ladies of the Goldfield Stock Exchange (Women of the West/Sybil Downing)

I loved this book. In fact it was the ladies of Goldfield during Goldfield days last year that told me to get it. Which I did.. It had good guys and bad guys. A great story of a gold mining town and 4 ladies that opened their own stock exchange.

When I first saw the book I hoped it wasn't a romance novel, it wasn't though there is romance of different kinds. Such a great find.

I liked this book for its strong, independent women characters. Meg travels from Boulder, CO all by her lonesome to go to Goldfield, Nevada to see what's going on with her father. The year is 1906 and just traveling alone was a no no for a lady back then.. but Meg is not deterred.

She arrives in NV to discover her father is dead and she is now the owner of a bunch of gold mine stock. She makes two friends, Verna and Tess. Verna is struggling to be the town's only woman reporter while she helps a poor family in need, struggles with her own health, and tries to break free of her brother's hold on her.

Tess is an ex whore struggling to be a respectable business woman and mother, but there is this one fellow that may prove to be her weakness.

Each woman is a business woman in a time when women didn't even drive automobiles unless they wished to be ostracized from polite society. The women team up to start their own stock exchange. This is where I started getting confused and bored. All the talk about stocks, prices, the exchange, bids... I don't understand any of that stuff. And doesn't someone have to go dig all of this gold out?? Miners? Where were they?

I like this author's style, however, and recommend this book for those who like strong heroines.

"Ladies of the Goldfield Stock Exchange" was horrible, and that's putting it lightly. The ladies stock exchange was overshadowed by the outbreak of pneumonia, the auto race, and the personal lives of the characters. The narrator switched too often, and the women had too many problems for the reader to focus on. Just when you became interested in one life, it abruptly switched to another, and the chapters were to short, which led to an overabundance of chapters. The ending was very sudden and too happy - don't get me wrong, I love happy endings; but, with the history of the women, it just didn't fit. The lack of an epilogue did not help, either. A waste of time and money. I do not recommend.

Meggan is determined to find who killed her father and why. Tess wants enough money to live somewhere with her daughter, without the shadow of being a former prostitute. Verna has been enabling her dreamer brother her whole life while running a newspaper to support them.

I couldn't get into this story. Tess is more concerned with making money for her daughter to live like a princess than loving her like a mother. Verna is a classic enabler. I couldn't like either of them so the book never captured my interest, and I quit about a quarter of the way through.
