Blood and Silver is about a twelve year old girl in 1880's Tombstone, AZ who runs into all kinds of trouble trying to save her mother's life. What is a twelve year old girl to do when she finds herself in the silver boomtown of Tombstone, Arizona, in 1880, and her only home is a brothel and her only parent is a drug-addicted mother? If she is Carissa Beaumont, she outsmarts the evil madam and figures a way out.

Excellent book, worth the read!


Wonderful Characters! Great Story!
I am a huge fan of historical fiction and this book is absolutely one of the best historical fiction pieces I have read in a very long time. The eye to detail is so fantastic that the reader actually feels transported to Tombstone, AZ in the 1880s. Also, the characters are developed so well. I found myself rooting for and against people from the story. I simply could not put the book down. Such a fun, easy and emotional read. I just loved it!
