Review: Warning, rape but it’s not explicit more alluded to.
Lizzie is intrigued by the outside world, but her father is happy keeping her trapped as a slave to cater to him and will never let her have a life or say of her own. When she finds out the man she hoped would ask for her hand had and her father refused then beat her for tempting the man to want her she had enough. Locking her father in the outdoor john she ran a way to start a new life and found there was more on the outside than she bargained for.
I was pleasantly surprised by this story. I found myself relating to Lizzie. It felt as if I went back in time and was there me fighting for women’s rights. The history was enough to get you up to speed but not boring and dull. The subject matter was serious but the writing was lighthearted and fast paced. A great love story between Lizzie and Margaret and sweet yet sexy.
I recommend this to anyone that likes historical fiction with sweet hot romance, Politics, and a story of a girl finding herself and making a life for herself.
We hope you enjoyed the trip back in time check back and see where we go tomorrow.
