About this ebook



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?

I am not a fan of books that cannot Finnish a story. Too tedious. Give it all to me at once. Don't tease. Much too long.

i think that the story as a whole is more important than the ending. this story has the power of eye opening for me, of the situation during the suffragate champaign, not just its mention in the backdrop or character only salivating over ones physical attribute. each character developed well that i can not hate even the most aggravating ones, because they too have their own view on life without it being overused in word, more of their reaction and interaction with others. good choice of timely words too.

personally I'm not a huge fan of Cliffhangers in a book myself it feels like it's a poor gimmick because an author is not a confident with their abilities to write so they have to do a cliffhanger the story doesn't end you have to buy the next I'm not a huge fan of that other than that I did enjoy reading a minute and put the book I just really hate being forced to buy another book
