The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy
Felicity Montague doesn’t want much in life. She does not desire to be married to a nice man or have a brood of children. She doesn’t care for fashion or proper etiquette. All Felicity wants is to study medicine. However, Felicity is a women far ahead of her time and, it seems, all the men in England are hell-bent on preventing her from achieving her medical license. As Felicity searches for new ways to convince the hard-headed males in charge of hospital programs that she is just as capable as them at studying medicine, she is swept up in a scheme that includes pirates, a childhood friend, and far too many men on an expedition that could change medicine forever.
While I found this book a difficult read, I came to love Felicity, Johanna, and Sim. The unlikely Triumvirate brought me deep into the eighteenth century and the early roots of feminism. Their strength and courage whilst facing the reality that they may never be seen as equals to men was admirable, but their fight for equality despite this made them warriors. Monty and Percy brought humor where humor was needed and I’m curious to see what happens next.
