Publisher's Summary

Five-time Christy Award winner Lynn Austin spins an enthralling, multi-generational tale spanning from 1848 to 1920.

While 20-year-old Harriet is behind bars, she reviews the history of her great-grandmother’s fight against slavery, her grandmother’s crusade against “demon rum,” and her mother’s struggle for women’s suffrage. Now she longs for the courage to leave her own legacy.

    "Lynn Austin strikes again!"

    I am a huge Lynn Austin fan and found this audio book to be just as good as reading it myself. I downloaded the book before a long solo car trip and couldn't help wanting to take another car trip to finish the book. The Narrator did a great job and I felt as though her pitch and delivery depicted the era in time as well. I would highly recommend this book and loved that I could clean the house and listen at the same time!

    "An Enjoyable Read. Big Fan."

    A great story blessed with Lynn Austin's gift for historical fiction. I very much appreciate her reliance on scripture as the basis for her stories.

    This was a touching story to me. I enjoyed each part. The story tells the story of 4 generations of women who made a difference for what they wanted to see change in their era. Great listen. As always, I have enjoyed this book by Lynn Austin.

    Story
    "Will keep you on the edger of your seat!"

    This book was extremely well written and narrated in a typical Lynn Austin style. It kept me on the edge of my chair eagerly awaiting more! You won't be disappointed!! I was go a way with something special after listening to her books, feeling like I personally know each character and disappointed for it to end. Which book shall I order next? Lynn's stories are more than entertaining, they are also educational and spiritually uplifting!

    Excellent! This volume can be compared to I Cor 13. It's very hard not to find yourself in one of these situations.

    "Nice story, too much God"

    Enjoyed the story but a bit too Christian for me. I also thought the ending was too abrupt. Felt like the writer just got tired

    "Great reader, well written historical novel t"

    Because this booked flipped through time a lot, listening to it was challenging at first. The talented reader helped in this regard. The story was riveting, a well spun historical novel. I enjoyed spending several days, including a road trip, with these characters.
