To many people, the women's suffrage movement in America begins and ends with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. But the effort was far deeper and older, and this book offers a historical overview that addresses this lack of public appreciation. Suzanne Toren offers an engaging and highly listenable reading. She varies her tone and pacing effectively, keeping listeners engaged. She breaks up the author's sometimes complex sentences into segments that listeners can grasp without losing the meaning of the entire passage. For direct quotes, she pauses slightly, rather than changing her voice. The author offers enough depth that even listeners who already know quite a bit about the movement will get something out of the work. R.C.G.
