Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K. Corral - Mary Doria Russell

"If you want a story book ending, stop -- now -- -and remember them in that tender moment.  Be content to know that they embarked on a series of adventures throughout the West and that they stayed together through thick and thin for forty-five years.

 

But know this as well:  if the story ended here, no one would remember them at all.

 

Where a tale begins and where it ends matters.  Who tells the story and why . . . That makes all the difference."

 

of course I'm reading on.  So far: Five Stars.
