"A provocative reminder of how hard American women had to fight for their rights. . . . Well-researched and elegantly written, this powerful narrative should be read by everyone, women and men."--Kate Lehrer, author of Confessions of a Bigamist

". . . a gripping story that brings history to life."--Margaret Coel, author of The Drowning Man

The year is 1918. The issue is passing the 19th amendment to the Constitution. Kate Brennan, a sheltered upper-class college graduate, is mistakenly arrested when she goes to the aid of suffragists being attacked in front of the White House during a peaceful rally. Galvanized by her fourteen-day sentence in the Occoquan workhouse, she becomes a passionate supporter of the National Woman's Party.
