ABOUT THE BOOK
A series of dime novels loosely based on local lore and featuring a nefarious villain known as Rawhide Rick has enjoyed modest popularity among readers. Nobody in Bethlehem Springs knows the man behind the stories ... except Daphne.
When newspaperman Joshua Crawford comes to town searching for the man who sullied the good name of his grandfather, Daphne finds herself at a crossroads, reassessing the power of her words, re-thinking how best to honor her gifts, and reconsidering what she wants out of life.

My Review: I now live in Idaho, and I'm not a fan of it! The weather stinks! There is NO BEACH! I could go on but I wont. Yet Robin's historical books about Idaho make place not seem so dull, or lifeless. I know I am painting a pretty blan picture of Idaho but I've had the pleasure of living other places and Idaho just doesn't cut it for me. So listen to me when I say that Robin's book A Matter of Character brings color, and excitement to the little state of Idaho. I highly recommend this book.
