Something Worth Doing by Jane Kirkpatrick

Abigail was warned by her mother.  Her lot would be hard.  And hard it was.  She was driven.  She would let nothing get in the way for the cause.  She fought hard and developed skills she didn't know she had.  But at a sacrifice.

This book was about the early years of the suffrage movement. It was quite interesting but sad in a way.  Abigail married and had a family.  But her focus and goal in life was getting the law passed so women could vote.  

In her quest, she let her personal life pass by her.  She was fighting for women to have it all- equality.  But can we?  But her sacrifice was at a cost.  She took her loved ones for granted.  I believe that she put up a wall so she could continue her fight.  Did she have any regrets?  

Abigail was an amazing woman.  She accomplished things that many could not even dream of doing.  I enjoyed reading about her journey and her development into the woman she became.

I received this book for free from Revell Books to review.
