The above would be a better title for this book. The author fairly canonizes Victoria Woodhull, despite Woodhull's well known history of deception and manipulation throughout her life. The author's description of the sexual lives of the characters throughout (but especially Woodhull's) are misplaced and too graphic and tasteless for this book, which descends into the 'bodice ripper' genre instead of an historical novel. Some of the stories go on for too long (Freydah and Shaina) and the reader ceases to care all that much. Parts of the book are well written but the writing overall is mediocre and inconsistent. Insights into the book's characters are interesting, with the exception of Woodhull, who is so white-washed as to be unrecognizable.
