    My best spent $1 !

    Out of boredom, going shopping, I came across a trift shop who was selling books when I found the 'Mayflower Madam'(never heard of it but the description was interesting). I came to USA 4 years ago from Europe and by reading a lot I've learned the language pretty fast. But as much as I've been reading, I must admit, this is by far the most enjoyable book and the $1 I spent for it was the most best spent dollar on something. it truly deserves 5 stars and as a woman, I must admit I've learned a lot about how to look at things differently, how men mostly think and how to have more respect about myself. beeing in the 21st century, really hasn't changed a lot of things for women, they are still treated with disrespect sometimes(especially by men)and justice will probably never be 100% 'just'. I want to thank personally to Ms. Biddle Barrows for giving me 2 days of joy(that's how fast I've read the book) Thank you!
