I am grateful to the Meridian Library for a copy. This is the first book in The Counterfeit Lady historical series. It takes in the 1900s at the time of when the USA is preparing to enter World War I and women were demanding to vote. The protagonist is fully developed and across with her views. The story is told from her viewpoint. The other characters need more development. The descriptions set you in the area.
Elizabeth is a grifter aka con man. She is working with a couple of gritters and they have relieved a from a man of a large sum and its collapses and she is running for her life. She managed to hide with a group of suffragist and went with them when arrested to jail. This group of suffrage was sent to a workhouse. Before she realized it cared about what happened. Will Elizabeth escaped the thugs after her? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
