    Other Powers interviews the stories of some of the most colorful social, political, and religious figures of America's Victorian era with the courageous and notorious life of Victoria Woodhull - psychic, suffragette, publisher, presidential candidate, and self-confessed practitioner of free love. It is set amid the battle for women's suffrage, the Spiritualist movement that swept across the nation in the age of Radical Reconstruction following the Civil War, and the bitter fight that pitted black men against white women.

    Val Sanford says: "Fascinating and seductive"

    Where does Other Powers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks close to the top.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The historical density explored in the Victoria Woodhull book is enough to satisfy any historian interested in suffrage, spiritualism, and the backstory to industrial barons, prostitution, religious ferocity, and hypocrisy that was the mid 19th century in America.


    What does Margaret Daly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As a female, Daly's oration keeps the listener engaged from a woman's point of view.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.
