Olivia Mead is a headstrong, independent girl—a suffragist—in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. It’s 1900 and Olivia’s father, concerned she’s headed for trouble, convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her.
Here is a (quickly growing) list of considerations for future selections. Check back frequently, and please feel free to offer novels and historical fiction that includes a Quaker component.
