An introduction to the early women's rights movement in Ontario. I grew up in a small farming community like this one and found the portrayal of community members to be realistic. Historical fiction is the most fun way to learn about our past. I was anxious to read more of this author's work after reading her book in the Secret series. I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.
