Great Novel About a Woman’s Path to Independence During The Gilded Age

Penelope’s family is desperate for her to find a husband. Her father lost his fortune during the Panic, so they need someone to finance them. Penelope’s mother forces her to attend the event of the season, Memorial Day Ball. She catches the eye of Mr. Daggers, who is a married womanizer. He makes an indecent proposal to Penelope. She declines and runs away to Boston with her best friend named Lucinda.

Once in Boston, Penelope accidentally becomes involved in the Women’s Right Movement. Verdana, a feisty suffragist who wears the horrendous bloomers, helps her become independent. Problem is Mr. Daggers reappears in Penelope’s life. She will find herself needing to choose between her calling and finding love.

This is a great romance and historical fiction novel about a woman becoming independent during the Gilded Age in the United States. Discusses the Women’s Rights Movement and women’s status in society at the time. I highly recommend it to fans of romance and historical fiction novels.
