I had the pleasure of working with Tara as her line editor on Ride for Rights. That said, I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a glimpse into a past where women still struggled to be seen as more than someone's wife or property.
Ride for Rights, historical YA
MuseItUp Publishing, Feb 10th, 2012
In the summer of 1916 women do not have the right to vote, let alone be motorcycle dispatch riders. Two sisters, Angeline and Adelaide Hanson are determined to prove to the world that not only are women capable of riding motorbikes, but they can ride motorbikes across the United States. Alone.
From a dance hall in Chicago to a jail cell in Dodge City, love and trouble both follow Angeline and Adelaide on the dirt roads across the United States. The sisters shout their triumph from Pike’s Peak only to end up lost in the Salt Lake desert.
Will they make it to their goal of Los Angeles or will too many mishaps prevent them from reaching their destination and thus, hinder their desire to prove that women can do it?
Laugh, cry, and smile with Angeline and Adelaide as they take their ride full of adventures, their ride for rights.
