Last Friday, Tara Chevrestt was a guest on the Girls Succeed blog. I invited her to tell us about the true story behind her 1916 story because I enjoyed reading her book so much. You can click on her interesting story which was posted on the Girls Succeed blog at Tara Chevrestt Ride for Rights.
My Review of Ride to Rights:
Ride for Rights follows the fictional adventures of two sisters who are determined to ride motorcycles across America in 1916. Why? Because they are proving women can do it AND to further the early twentieth century women's fight for the right to vote.
This amazing book, based on a true story, is one that makes the reader stand up and cheer for these young ladies who have a lot of grit and courage. Can you imagine driving a car let alone a bike across 1916 America with no road maps or even roads? I do think the author could have played up the overwhelming obstacles in the way of accomplishing such a feat. I loved the history mixed in with the adventure allowing readers a glimpse of life in the USA in 1916. Very well-written descriptions and dialog make this story a winner.
