I really enjoyed the fact that Monfredo used actual historical figures in the story to set the stage for the time period. They only had cameos, but it was interesting to read about them. I was not aware before reading this book that Frederick Douglass took such an active role in the fight for the vote for women. Also, many of the women who were active in the Women's Suffrage Movement were previously active alongside their husbands in the Abolitionist Movement.
I'd suggest this novel to fans of historical fiction or cozy mysteries.
