This book is very well-written and the depth of the characters and the story is so much more than I expected! Lucy is not only seeking rights for women, but for everyone as she does not believe people should have special rights just because they have money or a certain last name. Mental illness is addressed as well, and this is not just touched upon, but the symptoms are evident throughout the interactions of the characters and it is dealt with instead of brushed to the side. Charlotte is one of my favorite characters and there are still so many secrets about her and her life that are yet undiscovered and I am hoping book two will answer so many questions, but also have Lucy and Will playing prominent roles in the story as well! I am looking forward to other books in this series and I encourage anyone who enjoys historical fiction to read this book!
