To be honest, I purchased this novel because Sara Davidson was a writer and producer for Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and I was told she alluded to several behind the scene events in her book. IT isn't the type of book I'd normally choose to read. It seems to be more autobiographical than fiction, but not an uninteresting read.

This is a well-written, funny, and a nice insight into some of the behind the scenes activity of one of my favorite television series.
Not your typical romance story, and yet highly entertaining.

Written by one of the writers for the TV show, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Davidson is a highly intelligent, well-educated lady that meets and falls in love with a cowboy from rural Arizona. Zack, who has knowledge of life on a different level, has grown up in the tradition of the old west. He is a man who works with his hands creating original and authentic bridles from strips of leather, a long lost art form. He has yet to hear of the Holocaust or the New York Times. This unlikely relationship progresses with all the properties of oil mixed with water at times while the underlying current is one of intense sexual attraction and love.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are strong and believable as odd as it might seem. You can't help but love them as they stumble along trying to make it all work. Sara is an incredible mom of two children that play a pivotal part in all of her decisions. She allows us to see her human side and shares her confusion as well as her problem solving capabilities, most of all she has heart. I for one thank her for a story well told. I can't help but wonder what part of the story is fiction. Kelsana 5/22/01

Roughly the same age as Davidson I have long since come to the conclusion that our generation's greatest talents lie in the areas of drug/alcohol abuse, self-absorption and making money. Not content to leave well enough alone (read her 'Small Change' if you are a real glutton for punishment), Davidson plants herself in the vanguard of yet another state of higher evolution of the species (smart women with younger, ill-educated men). The core myth her work springs from is that humankind made a great epochal leap forward thanks to those kids at UC Berkeley in the 1960's. Giving narcissism a bad name, Davidson winds through more details of this latest spiritual journey to 'true love' than a reasonable person should have to bear. I soon come to admire her hunk Zach, mainly because he doesn't read. More works like this and I won't either. Another interesting (!?) thing about this book is that it is that peculiar and very popular hybrid which is either a non-ficion novel or a fictitious memoir. Dispensing with mere 'facts' in search of loftier 'emotional truths' we have this entire body of literature which seems to want it both ways. This book will sell a gazillion copies because it is a 'true' story. As a novel it would more likely head off to the obscurity it so richly deserves.

Written as a true story, Sara Davidson portrays a sophisticated and creative woman in her 40's, working as a writer on the "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" series, a divorcee with kids, who one day meets an illiterate trailer-park young cowboy and falls head over heels in lust.

Their relationship seems doomed from the beginning. Mentally, she could be his mother; in intelligence and educations she was centuries ahead of him; she had kids and other people's opinions to consider; she even needed to teach him where all the sexual female organs are. However, this ingénue hunk is a quick student and once he gets the important "lessons" he makes the leap to master and proceeds to virtually "show her heaven." Those were very hot and explicit scenes that would not shame any erotica writer!!!

There were parts in the book where I wanted to shout at her for behaving as she did in front of her impressionable kids without regard to anything, except the next "fix" she was going to get in the bedroom. In other parts I felt sorry for her that she had to give her lover up because she had to consider her kids and so many other people. She was torn and I could really feel her torment over this. I think her conflict was very well narrated and explained. Why shouldn't a grown self-sufficient woman choose to have a torrid sexual relationship with the man of her choice? On the other hand, why should her kids suffer because she was in thrall and addicted to her new young and very proficient lover?

The end was plausible and balanced, so I didn't feel disappointed. Also, as a longtime fan of the series "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman", I enjoyed reading some of the backstage drama that went on between the lead actors. Maybe I could enjoy the book because it was so far removed from my life (unlike other reviewers who took this story way too personally.) I thought it was an excellent book and I will definitely check Davidson's other books.

When I began this non-fiction account of a woman writer and her attraction to a cowboy, I felt anxious somehow, and nearly put it down. However, the strong storyline pulled me farther, and soon I became locked into her struggle and didn't want it to end. I realized that my discomfort at first might have been due to the complete honesty with which she dares to reveal her feelings, despite the obvious facts that the relationship will never work. Sara is tough on herself. I wanted to warn her just as her friends did, but on the other hand, I wanted to meet this cowboy myself! Of course, that's the best part--living vicariously without the pain. This book will rope you and tie you down. The characters are intriguing and the style is hard and tight.
