Victory Garden: A Novel
Mr. President, what will you do for woman suffrage?
It’s 1917, in the midst of World War 1, 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 working in Washington, D.C. for votes for women, Rose is arrested for her suffragist activities. 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.
