Three separate stories. All intriguing. All involving ladies!
The Gentleman Smuggler's Lady
Set on the Cornish coast Helen returns home to look after her father who is dying. She is quite prim and seeing Isaac she cannot quite figure out whether he is a smuggler and an outcast or a respectable member of Irish society.
The Doctor's Woman
This was a woman who set about doing something extraordinary at a time when women were supposed to be quite submissive and work behind the scenes. Acting as a doctor in most circumstances, she took a lot of people by surprise and upset many at the same time. Set in 1862 she was a pioneer! Much to be admired.
A House of Secrets
Set in 1890 Minnesotta, women still are expected to live and behave within strict boundaries. Amanda's attempts to set things right within a section of society comes up against a lot of odds, surprisingly enough her fiancee. How does one balance love and your beliefs.
All three stories were about strong women who were willing to face social suicide in their attempts to do things their way.
Very good reading.
