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.

Review:


I was lucky enough to receive an advanced readers copy of this book from the wonderful Tina Mories at Abrams & Chronicle Books.  I kept this book to read it closer to the release date and also thought it would be a perfect fit for my October TBR List.  Wow, what a perfect read!

From the hauntingly beautiful front cover, to the historic photographs spread throughout the book, I was captivated immediately.  Once you begin reading, Cat Winters instantly transports you back to the 1900's, to the world of Olivia Mead, our strong willed heroine and her journey to become an equal during the women's suffrage.  A true gift for an author who has the ability to take you from one world to another.

A truly mesmerising read, this is one you won't want to miss out on!

So what are you waiting for, get out there and buy this book now.  I highly recommend getting your hands on the hardcover edition to enhance the beauty of the books pages.

Congratulations to Cat Winters, may you have many future successes!
