What People are Saying About This

Christopher Densmore

Beyond those specifically interested in reform, this book will attract a wider audience interested in biography and women's lives. The 'plot' of Martha Coffin Wright's life is inherently dramatic and well captured by this book.

Judith Wellman

This is a highly readable, very well researched book about an important woman whose life raises major questions about freedom, rights, religion, family, race, and women's roles generally. Wright is so wonderfully witty and so quotable.... Who would not love to read this book?
