Outlander meets post-Civil War unrest in this fast-paced historical debut.When Dr. Catherine Bennett is wrongfully accused of murder, she knows her fate likely lies with a noose unless she can disappear.

Although the story of the murderess in New York is common gossip, Catherine's false identity serves her well as she fills in as a temporary army doctor.

I'm not very fond of "westerns" with the exception of a few outstanding, well written, absorbing books. "Sawbones" is definitely one of those. Lenhardt's literary style is very readable and she has created a totally compelling page turner. Just when you think you know what's going to happen, something unexpected occurs. Her characters are well developed and likable even their personal flaws.
I can't wait to read the sequel, "Blood Oath"
