As I read through the reviews of this book I was surprised and disappointed by the negative response simply because it is a romance between two women The romance is clearly stated in the description of the book there is no secret agenda just unobservant readersWhen I saw a book in the Kindle First Reads about a romance between two women I was pleasantly surprised This is a genre that is underrepresented in the mainstream so it was refreshing to see it offered by My disappointment came in trying to read the book I could not get through it I wanted to I gave it four tries but I just could not get into it The only reason I gave this book three stars was because of the characters Hattie was a woman ahead of her time but not in a cookie cutter way Yes she eschewed typical women s clothing of the time and smoked and drank which are all typical ways of creating a rebellious female character but she was also interested in mechanics engineering and science She was highly intelligent and self educated in the subjects that interested her Louisa is a good fit for Hattie Although not as spirited and traditional she has an inner strength and is a survivor dealing with PTSD from the war She provides a traditional balance to Hattie s revolutionary personalityThe issue that I had with this book is the way that it was written The plot is all over the place or perhaps there are just too many plots The book was also written in a choppy fashion skipping around from one perspective to another and random event to random event It almost felt like a list than a story Because of this I was only able to make it about a third of the way into the book before finally giving up Although I am still debating on if I want to give it another try simply to see what becomes of the characters Overall my dislike of this book comes down to style so it is a personal preference but I would recommend it for the characters
