~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This week I added the following to my shelf:
One woman’s struggle for voting rights places her in danger. . .and may cost her the love of her life.
In 1916, eighteen-year-old Sarah Whittaker is struggling to care for her dying mother when she discovers that the executor of her father’s estate is stealing her inheritance. Young lawyer Alex Taylor defends her cause, and in the process, he wins her heart. But his employer opposes the romance, claiming that Sarah’s budding political beliefs will threaten Alex’s career.
Heartbroken yet determined to fight for women’s rights, Sarah travels to Washington, DC, where she begins a journey that will lead from the White House gates to the “Night of Terror” in Occoquan Workhouse. Alex rushes to the nation’s capital to secure Sarah’s freedom, but will he arrive too late?
Against the backdrop of scenic Estes Park, Colorado, comes a story filled with mayhem, romance, and plenty of drama-- most of it on the stage. The year is 1912, and tomboy Lottie Sanders would do just about anything to help the fella she secretly loves. When Gilbert Parker's family lodge faces financial ruin, he suggests putting on a melodrama to draw in a crowd. He appeals to Lottie to direct the show. Her plan to bring in actresses from across the country is sabotaged when the local single men turn it into a hunt for brides. Lottie finds the drama shifting from the stage to real life. Filled with villains, vixens, heroes, and enough actresses to fill a theater, this quirky melodramatic.
