The second book in my Pennington's series, A SHOP GIRL GETS THE VOTE is currently 99p/$1.99 on Amazon, yay!

If you haven't read this book yet (previously published as A Rebel At Pennington's) now is the time to buy - this book revolves around the heroine, Esther Stanbury and her quest to find herself and join the fight for women's suffrage.

The theme for the entire series is female empowerment and learning more about the women's suffrage movement was eye-opening and inspiring. One of the biggest conflicts my research brought up for me wasn't just the struggles these women faced in trying to secure the vote,but also the moral see-saw they dealt with in deciding whether the suffragist (peaceful) or the suffragette (militant) strategy was the right one.

This whole issue became one that I wanted my heroine to explore. When Esther meets widowed father of two, Lawrence Culford he brings a whole new dynamic to Esther's life and her fight...

Here is the blurb & buy links - don't forget this is only on sale for a limited time!
