Overview

Mr. President, what will you do for woman suffrage?

It's 1917, in the midst of World War I, and Rose Scofield knows exactly what she'll do for woman suffrage. She'll fight with her very life to make votes for women a reality.

A headstrong young woman who yearns to be herself in a time when women weren't free, Rose comes of age when world wars are new and automobiles, moving pictures, and airplanes are marvels of technology. She falls in love with Adam Bell, a vaudeville actor who travels the country with his brothers gathering laughs and hard knocks, though she denies her feelings for him, fearing he could prove to be her weakness. While fighting for the right to vote in Washington, D.C., Rose is arrested. After her release she must come to terms with her dreams for the future.

Can we trust our government to do what is best for us? What must we sacrifice in times of war? And what must women suffer to be truly equal? Victory Garden is a reminder of how far we've come...and how far we still have to go.

    An excellent read. It started a little slow but rapidly picked up the pave. It was very enlightening about the plight of women around the turn of the 20th century. I am truly grateful and forever thankful for all that they endured so I could experience, fully, the freedoms I have ad a woman of the 21st century!

    THANK YOU, LADIES.

    An unexpected great read

    I admit it was slow at first but i found myself wrapped up in the characters and pausing several times to appreciate all that real people like the characters in this book went through for this country. Well written and thought provoking. I plan to read more from this author.

    This book is an excellent read about a strong woman during a time in American history when it wasn't proper to be a strong woman. It started a little slow, but picked up quickly. I especially enjoyed the historical aspects of the story. A great read!!!

    Enjoyable, But Question Some Techniques

    I enjoyed this and learned things I didn't remember or never learned about WW1 and women's suffrage. However, I had some trouble identifying with the lead character. I wondered why the author chose to use claustrophobia as an aspect of her character? Sometimes the claustrophobia episodes didn't seem to fit with her otherwise strongwilled and competent nature. Having German heritage myself, it was interesting to learn that German-Americans in WWI were treated so badly--much like Japanese-Americans during WWII. The love story has some twists to keep it interesting.

    I found this to be an excellent book, getting to know and understand the main character's strengths and flaws and to have another perspective of what women in the past have gone through for us.

    Very good read, a little short, but a lot was packed into it, particularly the last third. It was a little slow to start, but I enjoyed it. It sparked my interest in the woman's suffrage movement and the first world war. A good little read with just enough real history and told in a way that kept it interesting. Would definitely be interested in seeing the last third expanded into more detail.
