My new novel available for pre-order!
I’m thrilled to announce pre-orders are available of the Kindle edition of my brand new time travel novel A Suffragette in Time. Introductory price $0.99 or the equivalent. The paperback will be published later this month.
Creating a protagonist who becomes a women’s suffrage activist has been quite an educational odyssey. Because Sarah Burns rubs elbows with abolitionists involved with the Underground Railroad, I learned a lot about anti-slavery activities of that period. That’s one of the things I like about writing historical fiction – gaining a deeper understanding of the past.
The story takes place in the Philadelphia area – a hotbed of the anti-slavery movement. Most of the events occur a few years after the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. That law required average citizens to assist in the return of fugitive slaves to the southern states. It increased polarization over the institution of slavery and is considered one of the causes of the American Civil War.
Sarah is a young woman who finds herself drawn to both the women’s suffrage movement and the abolition movement.
Hope you enjoy the read!
