Summary

Olivia Mead is a headstrong, independent girl - a suffragist - in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. It’s 1900 in Oregon, and Olivia’s father, concerned that she’s headed for trouble, convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her. But the hypnotist, an intriguing young man named Henri Reverie, gives her a terrible gift instead: She’s able to see people’s true natures, manifesting as visions of darkness and goodness, while also unable to speak her true thoughts out loud. These supernatural challenges only make Olivia more determined to speak her mind, and so she’s drawn into a dangerous relationship with the hypnotist and his mysterious motives, all while secretly fighting for the rights of women. Winters breathes new life into history once again with an atmospheric, vividly real story, including archival photos and art from the period throughout.

Ok

This was a bit tedious because of the fact that the narration was robotic in sections... Like a computer voice. Whoever edited this did a poor job. Ignore that and it's a good story.

Good Historical Fiction, audio could use some work

I'll start with my review of the audio itself. The reader needs to fix her microphone or get a new one. It became distracting when the audio would suddenly change volume and quality for a sentence, and then go back to normal. Maybe this is some kind of rendering issue, still an issue none the less. And while the skipping wasn't frequent, there were skips throughout the reading. The reader herself was wonderful, and she does some good accents, I was just distracted by the quality.

The story itself was good, and I could see myself using this with my students one day (I'm a teacher). I enjoyed the allusions to Dracula (the novel), as I am interested in the way Dracula reads from the feminists point of view. If you read this then I strong encourage reading Dracula as well. This is a good companion piece and almost acts as a response to that novel. The ending is not very shocking, though the climax of the novel is quite exciting. The author brings up many important issues about gender equality and the importance of having a voice.
