Seneca Falls is our perfect mirror for viewing the American woman and man of the 1860s. Monfredo’s imaginative research and lucid writing create a fine balance.
Monfredo is masterful at creating immediate suspense. . .the sense of urgency is always present.
Written beautifully, richly satisfying both to the head and to the heart.
Monfredo is nothing less than a magician. She skillfully weaves together our country’s history with the everyday concerns of its citizens to hold the reader spellbound. Then she adds a tight plot and beautifully drawn characters and –- voila! The past has come to life.
