Cover Thoughts: muh. The cover doesn't have any real connection to the story and I would really like that from this book. A connection, an image.
Review: I thought I would be reading a book about women's rights and while this book is about the rights of humans. It the men who are fighting for their rights. We are talking year 1649, men who don't own land didn't have the right to anything at this point. This book is written in a time were the class system is more the most important things to people.
I read this book fast but mostly because I just wanted to get through it. I wanted to get to the end of the trail and see what happened to Rachel. The book was written from different person's perspective and it was very confusing sometimes. The only person's who perspective's I actually cared about were Rachel's and Thomas Bartwain. It was interesting to read about the revolt, but it felt like a side story.
The romance part of the book was interesting. I always have wondered what woman did when they didn't get married. What to say without spoilers... the ending the last twenty pages were a shock I didn't expect that and it was so interesting, but weird and kinda disturbing. I wonder how many people that happened to.
I won't read this book but it was a good read and an interesting historical fiction. HAPPY READING!
