I didn‘t really like this book when I read it as a teenager, but I actually quite enjoyed it this time around. I still like the movie better, though.
This was a bookclub reread. I gave it 5* when it was released, but have more mixed feelings now. I‘ve read piles historical fiction since then and have become critical of the naïveté authors sometimes write into historical figures. Maud Gage had a fascinating upbringing with her suffragette mother and subsequent marriage to L Frank and I believe her to be more sophisticated than she was portrayed here. ↓
