I bought this book at The Women’s History Museum at Liberty Station here in San Diego. My mother’s maiden name was Cady & I wanted to see if there was anything that hinted at our being related to Miss Cady.
But, once I got reading it, I was fascinated by this woman, who although a feminist by today’s standards, still loved fancy clothes & parties. She loved talking with the men, which at that time was not allowed. I loved seeing how she continued her education by getting others on her side.
I got so into the book that I began to worry about her attraction to her sister’s husband. But, Elizabeth had scruples & when push came to shove, she told her brother-in-law to shove off.
Like others here, I would love to read a sequel. Even though there is plenty of nonfiction writing about Ms. Cady Stanton’s suffragette years, historical fiction is so much more fun to read. In fact, if Ms. Bates does not write the sequel, I may not read anything else about this woman who very likely is an ancestor of mine!
Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador: http://tinyurl.com/klxbt4y
Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too. You can go to the Home page of her blog to watch it:
