(From the publisher):
The year is 1918. The issue is American women's right to vote. Kate Brennan, a sheltered, upper-class college graduate, is arrested when she goes to the aid of suffragists being attacked in front of the White House during a peaceful rally. Galvanized by her fourteen-day sentence in the Occoquan workhouse, she becomes a passionate supporter of the National Woman's Party.
Kate learns how to survive the dangerous world of hardball politics from Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, actual historical leaders of the Party. She falls in love with a man who may or may not sympathize with her cause. When the fight takes her to Colorado, she joins forces with Mary. Daly, an intrepid union leader, and puts her life on the line for the vote.
