    Sandra Robbins in her new book, "A Lady's Choice" Book

    Sandra Robbins in her new book, "A Lady's Choice" Book Four in the An American Tapestry series published by Summerside Press takes us into the life of Sarah Whittaker.




    From the back cover: One woman's struggle for voting rights places her in danger. . .and may cost her the love of her life.




    In 1916, eighteen-year-old Sarah Whittaker is struggling to care for her dying mother when she discovers that the executor of her father's estate is stealing her inheritance. Young lawyer Alex Taylor defends her cause, and in the process, he wins her heart. But his employer opposes the romance, claiming that Sarah's budding political beliefs will threaten Alex's career.




    Heartbroken yet determined to fight for women's rights, Sarah travels to Washington, DC, where she begins a journey that will lead from the White House gates to the "Night of Terror" in Occoquan Workhouse. Alex rushes to the nation's capital to secure Sarah's freedom, but will he arrive too late?




    I haven't seen many books about the suffrage movement so this book was a real eye-opener for me. I knew it took a lot of work but I never knew that many considered the suffragists traitors. Sarah's inheritance was being robbed by the executor and she needed Alex to defend her. Romance blooms but she is a suffragette and his boss won't allow the romance. While in Washington in 1917 Sarah becomes involved with the "Night Of Terror". The ladies who were protesting in front of The White House were arrested and sent to the Occoquan Workhouse in Virginia. W.H. Whittaker, the cruel superintendent at the Workhouse, didn't take kindly to these women and the investigation they caused. So on November 14, 1917. Forty-four club-wielding men beat, kicked, dragged and choked their charges. That is history. Now Ms. Robbins has given us a story that belongs up there with the terrific movies that have come before. Sarah is a great role model and, through her involvement, we learn a lot about what it took to give women the right to vote. Alex is just the perfect hero and these two together make the pages fly by like lightning. These are wonderful characters that live and breathe on the pages and you care deeply for them. Danger, thrills and romance "A Lady's Choice" has it all. This book does not disappoint in any area. I enjoyed it and I am sure you will also.

    I cannot say enough good things about A Lady's Choice. This book

    I cannot say enough good things about A Lady's Choice. This book had me thinking for days, even now, after I read it. Color me dense,
    but until I followed Sarah on her journey to give women the right to vote, I had no idea of the hardships the suffragettes endured.
    But A Lady's Choice is more than that. It is the beautiful love story between Sarah Whittaker and Alex Taylor that started when
     Alex caught Sarah with the hem of her dress raised over her ankles. Sarah is a strong woman who stands for her conviction
    that women should have the vote. And this puts her at odds with Alex when he goes to work at a law firm that is openly outspoken
    against this movement. I started A Lady's Choice on a Sunday afternoon and finished it that night, staying up way later than I intended.
    Sandra Robbins did a wonderful job of keeping me turning the pages.
