Jeanne Gehretabout this book: • "Entertaining new series of historical novels." — Midwest Book Review
Like his sister Susan B. Anthony, Daniel risked his life and reputation for his radical beliefs. When he decided to pursue a woman, he brought to bear the same intelligence and charisma that made Susan a force to be reckoned with. Unfortunately, his love interest discovered that some in the Wild West considered him a scoundrel.
After the lovers' initial meeting, the novel tracks the progress of their courtship through letters between their respective homes in Kansas and Martha's Vineyard. Glimpses of Annie's whaling fortune and island intrigues contrast with Daniel's humble farm upbringing and his later battles to abolish slavery in the Wild West. Underground Railroad fugitives weave through the narrative in both settings, and Susan frequently touches upon her brother's life.
Inspired by true stories, this is Book One in the Dauntless Series about the pioneering Kansas branch of the Anthony family. By the author of Susan B. Anthony And Justice For All.
