Plus I didn’t appreciate the fact that the author needed to stereotype the heroine by making her unattractive; was it so hard for the author to create a radical feminist who unwillin actually pretty?

They are just comfy, cozy, feel good reads. The Company of Rogues Series. Her work as a teacher gives her the independence she always craved and a life free from the shackles of matrimony.


What Readers Are Saying What do you think? See the other authors section. As for Beth, while she started off as a champion for feminism, she was quick to forgive her husband’s violent nature.
