Carla Mercer-Meyer gives a heartfelt narration of this story, set in the 1900s during the Suffrage Movement. The novel begins with Violet's utter dismay that her parents have been hiding personal letters from her older sister, Chloe, who recently left home for New York to fight for women's right to vote. Violet takes her meager savings and sets out to find her sister. Whether it's the motherly, unsolicited advice of women on the train; the lively slang of Hobie the Hobo; or the matter-of-fact confidence of Violet's African-American companion, Myrtle, Mercer-Meyer voices all with ease and believability.
