    As our country continues to fight for equality and equal justice for all people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation, a book like this serves as a beacon of hope of what could be The characters I so loved in Gilded Summers come to life with evenpurpose in Gilded Dreams This time it s not just a fight for their own individuality It s a fight for all women to have a say in the laws of the land, and those who make them, by earning the right to vote It was a long, hard fight As our country continues to fight for equality and equal justice for all people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation, a book like this serves as a beacon of hope of what could be The characters I so loved in Gilded Summers come to life with evenpurpose in Gilded Dreams This time it s not just a fight for their own individuality It s a fight for all women to have a say in the laws of the land, and those who make them, by earning the right to vote It was a long, hard fightone which Pearl and Ginevra joined close to the culmination of its victory, but no less hard fought by these two extraordinary and strong women The incorporation of the historical figures and events which occurred during the long fight for women s suffrage made this novel a riveting read The tragedy within, the sad aftermath of the Titanic disaster, the terrible reality of the Great War, the Night of Terror, all brought a sense of poignancy to the story as each touched the lives of the characters This sequel was meant to be written I hope women, and men, will read this book to honor the hard work of our forebears Only through the continued interest of artists who choose to depict these important historical events will they ever remain a reminder of what was fought for and won I, for one, am honored to be a woman who is allowed to vote because of these women who went before, and on August 18, 2020, I will proudly wear the gold, white, and purple colors.I received this book free of charge from the author

    Eye opening and remarkably gripping I m ashamed to admit how woefully uninformed about what American suffragettes went through to get us the vote This book not only opened my eyes to the truth, but its intriguing, fast pace also had me turning pages long into the night.A MUST READ for women in this 100th anniversary year of the 19th amendment a must read for anyone interested in this period and all its incredible eventsthe sinking of the titanic, WW1, suffrage, and so much .
