Publisher's Summary

Free-Spirited
Clarissa Sullivan dreams for more from life than sipping tepid tea in stifling parlors in Victorian Boston. She defies her family's wishes, continuing to teach poor immigrant children in Boston's West End, finding a much-needed purpose to her life.
Radical
As a suffragette, Clarissa is considered a firebrand radical no man would desire. For why should women want the vote when men have sheltered women from the distasteful aspects of politics and law?
Determined
When love blossoms between Clarissa and Gabriel McLeod, a struggling cabinetmaker, her family objects. Clarissa's love and determination will be tested as she faces class prejudices, manipulative family members, and social convention in order to live the life she desires with the man she loves. Will she yield to expectations, or follow her heart on a journey of self-discovery as she learns what she cannot live without?

Not the Right Book For Me


The author put a lot into this book and I appreciate that. However, I found that this was not really something that swept me away. It is about women's suffrage in Victorian Boston (what does that mean?) The main character does her best to promote the rights of women, while swooning over a man. The subject matter just didn't interest me and I gave up after listening and giving it several tries.

Ramona Flightner writes well and perhaps if it were pursuing a less serious matter I would have enjoyed it more.

Lauren Mccullough gives a solid performance.

Notes: Mild, safe book. Nothing to warn of here – at least as far as I listened to it, 5 hours or so.
Rating: G in a movie theater

I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that I read the reviews of others before I purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select "yes" directly below this review? Thank you so much.

Please consider "following me" here on Audible.com. I purchase a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to and well known names. I also have the unique opportunity to review books from lesser known/new authors in all genres. Most of these books are not something that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and great narrators.

- DK "No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!"

OMG, cliffhanger!

I usually look at book ratings and not reviews because so many people add spoilers. However, I will say how disappointed I was in this book. The story is good, the narration drove me crazy and yet I stuck with it for 11 hours for a damn cliffhanger.
