Product Description

Walter Dotson is a pillar of his Gallatin community. A doctorand city alderman, his reputation is above reproach.He's quite satisfied with his life with his beautiful wife, Anna, and their two children.But lately Anna Dotson has found her life unsatisfying and lonely. Walter has lost interest in her while he focuses his attention on the community, and the local ladies' society has grown increasingly stifling.Then Charlie Cobb, an ambitious and handsome man, comes to town. He quickly befriends Walter, but it's his interest in Anna that will destroy all of their lives. As the woman's suffrage movement marches on Washington, Anna finds herself drawn further and further from the role she is expected to play. And the consequences are deadly.An epic account ripped from the headlines of the Tennessean and American, March 16, 1913, this is the story of how Anna's betrayal leads to a shocking public murder, the killer's full confession to a local reporter, and a riveting trial. The only thing more surprising than the crime itself is the verdict.

Publisher's Description

Based on actual events, Anna Dotson is a passionate modern woman of the 1900s who finds herself stifled by the lingering outdated rules of Victorian society. When her every attempt to rekindle romance and affection with her husband--a prominent local doctor--fails, she finds herself turning to the friendship of Charlie Cobb, a new man in town. But as their relationship becomes more intimate, smalltown tongues start wagging, and their starcrossed affair leads to a shocking public murder.

Publisher's Weekly

Nashville Circuit Court judge Gayden’s mixed debut tracks a tragic love story that begins at a Tennessee Christian summer camp in 1896. There, pastor’s daughter Anna Dennis, 16, and Walter Dotson, a third-year Vanderbilt medical student, fall hard for each other. By winter, he’s interning at her local hospital, and their courtship and early married life—including a stint in Vienna, where daughter Mabel is born—have all the trappings of a conventional romance. By 1908, the family numbers four and settles in Gallatin, Tenn., near Anna and Walter’s hometowns, but a miscarriage sets the stage for murder and scandal. Gayden’s writing in the romance sections is flat and unconvincing, but perks up in the last quarter, when the novel goes full-on procedural, delivering the murder trial and the related media coverage in close detail. The trial, based on real events, is intriguing, the verdict unexpected and period detail adds depth. (Feb.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
