Overview


Growing up in an orphanage prepared Amelia Cooke for the high-stakes role of a female lobbyist in 1887, a time before women could vote. So when she's hired by the National Women's Suffrage Association to lobby for a suffrage amendment, Amelia feels empowered to give women a voice. What she doesn't foresee is Senator Edward Stillman. Stillman is charismatic, driven, and desperate to crush the amendment and Amelia. But in a political game where bribery, threats, extortion, and seduction prevail, who will win and at what cost?

Set in the extravagant Gilded Age, Remember the Ladies explores the conflict between the sexes with delightful writing and elegant descriptions, which brings the reader back to a time when the struggle for women’s equality had just begun.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This compelling novel tells of one young suffragist’s brave tenacity in fighting for voting rights for women. More than that, it is a story of the struggle for power at the center of politics, and ultimately examines the question of what’s really important. It’s an engaging read all the way through—but you will especially love the ending!”

—Ann Tatlock, Award-winning author of Once Beyond a Time

"Gina Mulligan's…narration brings to life the story of one woman's determined opposition to turn-of-the-century paternalism. For Amelia Cooke, winning the vote for women was a consuming — but not her only — passion."

—C. Michael Curtis, The Atlantic

"A riveting tale of courage and perseverance, Remember the Ladies transported me to the tantalizingly complex world of the Gilded Age. I fell for the brave and resourceful Amelia on the very first page, and you will, too.

An absolute pleasure to read."

—Kirstin Chen, author of Soy Sauce for Beginners
