Description: Constance Kopp doesn’t quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding fifteen years ago. One day a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family — and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared.  (via Goodreads)

Thoughts: On a number of book podcasts that I listen to, I heard good things about this book and thought that I might like this book as well.

I did really like the fact that the book was based on a true story, but felt that the smaller story was drawn out more than it should have and was a little too much for me.  It seemed to drag in places and felt that if it were a little shorter, the book may have been more effective.

Bottom line: It was a nice enjoyable read and would recommend the book to those that need something a little fun to read or those that like historical fiction based on actual people and events.  Recommended.

Rating: 3/5
