New giveaway! Now I'm giving away a copy of A Lady's Choice by Sandra Robbins.

About the book:

One woman’s struggle for voting rights places her in danger. . .and may cost her the love of her life.

In 1916, eighteen-year-old Sarah Whittaker is struggling to care for her dying mother when she discovers that the executor of her father’s estate is stealing her inheritance. Young lawyer Alex Taylor defends her cause, and in the process, he wins her heart. But his employer opposes the romance, claiming that Sarah’s budding political beliefs will threaten Alex’s career.

Heartbroken yet determined to fight for women’s rights, Sarah travels to Washington, DC, where she begins a journey that will lead from the White House gates to the “Night of Terror” in Occoquan Workhouse. Alex rushes to the nation’s capital to secure Sarah’s freedom, but will he arrive too late?

My thoughts: I don't have a copy of this book to review. Please post a comment answering the question below and your name will be entered into a drawing to win a copy of this book. The winner will be chosen next Sunday via "the hat" randomizer program.

Now for the question: Why do you think it took so long for women to get the right to vote in this country?

I have not read this author but story looks great, women did not have a voice anything in earlier days. To take part in a political thing had to take many years and lot of pushing to get women started. Women now should look upon this as a privilege and honor and be sure to vote..
thanks for sharing about this author and the book.

Because it was something new and many people were against it. Men didn't want women to be able to do the same things, they weren't suppose to have an opinion, or if they did to keep it to themselves.

I think the reason it took so long for
women to have the right to vote, is because there was only men in the political field and they though that women was to stay home and take care of thing there and they did think women were smart enough to vote. The book sounds great thank for giving me a chance to win. God bless you.

Because men thought a woman's place was in the home taking care of the house and the kids, and they had no business even thinking about politics. I don't think they thought women could do anything else. I would love to read this book. Thanks for having the giveaway.

I think it took so long because people in general don't like change. This looks like a fun book on an unusual topic

I love reading books with a strong female character! Like any major changes in this country, it takes
time to make reforms! Civil rights,
women's vote, Civil War and freedom for slaves.
Many thanks, Cindi

Because so many people were against women voting. It gave women more power than some men wanted women to have. Thanks for the giveaway. Please enter me. I would love to read this book.

I think because back in the time man ruled. Women followed the man. Today women are more equal. I would love to read it. Thanks for the giveaway.
