Entertaining Americana romance
In 1874 New York, former spiritualist Winifred Appleton applies for entrance to various law schools, but is rejected by everyone because she is female. Desperate to further the cause of women¿s rights using the system, Winifred accepts the only offer she has in the legal world, as an apprentice law clerk to her best friend state prosecutor Charles Howe. <P>In spite of the howling of the media about this appointment that defies God¿s words, Charles goes ahead and teaches Winifred the law. He loves Winifred and sees this as an opportunity for him to spend time with his beloved. Though he loves watching Winifred¿s use her Joan of Arc like passion to further the suffragette movement, Charles figures this is just a passing phase. He plans to marry his apprentice. However, the best laid plans of mice and Charles goes astray when they end up on opposite sides of a murder case. <P>COURTING TROUBLE pays homage to the late nineteenth-early twentieth centuries' women who led the suffrage movement. Clearly done with respect and awe towards the great women of the past, Katie Rose crafts a wonderful historical romance that will please sub-genre fans as well as readers of historical fiction. The story line is fast-paced and entertaining with insight into a bygone Americana era. The lead couple is an exciting duo while the secondary players make the tale brim with the feel, mood, and tolerance of Reconstruction era New York. Ms. Rose shows her talent by making A CASE FOR ROMANCE an entertaining means to learn about our heritage. <P>Harriet Klausner
