really liked it

This is a good book to read slowly, a page at time, when you're looking to distract yourself from your life with some diverting history. I don't think it works very well as something you sit down and read cover to cover.

I picked it up because I'm writing a novel set in the later Victorian era and wanted to get some flavor. Unfortunately for me, most of the "wild women" in this book are Americans, not Brits, so not as helpful for research as I had hoped.

But still, I enjoyed it, and the bite-sized biographies of all these different women made me smile and in some cases, make plans to read more about them. Such wonderful troublemakers and status quo disrupters. My kind of women.
