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.
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?
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?

Book and Reading was Excellent

I think the story is good but a little too long and the ending is disappointing. I found myself skipping chapters as I felt some parts where overly descriptive and verbose. It a nice romance for a young audience. I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
