This book has everything... mystery, intrigue, romance, revolution, a struggle for human rights and the equality of women in late 19th century France. The author has a way of writing that draws you in and makes you feel as if you are right there experiencing everything as it happens. I had a hard time putting it down and read most of it in one setting.

A Woman's Way is a novel based on the life story of the 19th century French Feminist, Maria Deraismes. Sofia Diana Gabel blends historical fact with fiction as she details Maria Deraismes' struggle against misogynistic men and the French government during the turbulent 1870s in Paris. Maria gets involved with the Paris Commune in 1871 and rallies behind the new socialist government, thinking it will end inequality, but it doesn't. Violence soon erupts when troops break through the barricades on April 2nd and begin a bloody week to overthrow the Commune. Maria tries to speak for the people, but ends up in front of a firing squad. Will she manage to escape death and bring equality to Paris, or will her hopes and dreams die with her?
