Unforgettable Miss Baldwin
The controversy began in 1840. By the time Allie Baldwin got involved with suffrage in 1886 the battle was ongoing and had not gotten far. Men were still balking and complaining about women not being smart enough to understand politics, and besides, they were bred to be home, the men said. It all seemed hopeless, but Allie saved the day with her tenacity, hard work, and writings that spread the word.
In a whirlwind romance, a lovely New York socialite marries a fêted, debonair author. But beneath the charm is a cheating husband addicted to hasheesh. Her dream marriage turns sour and the simplicity of her life runs amok when a handsome stranger, her husband’s business partner, threatens her staunch loyalty to her wayward husband, forcing her to face the ugly truth about her marriage.
