“The Engineer’s Wife by Tracey Enerson Wood offers a fascinating snapshot of a woman’s perspective from a time period not often written about - just after the Civil War. Men and women’s roles were in flux, it was the dawn of the industrial revolution, and the suffrage movement was taking off. And here comes a woman, thrust into a man’s role, succeeding despite the odds, and struggling to both find herself in the project and embrace who she is becoming as a result. A thorough author’s note succinctly explains the historical fact versus the artistic liberty; for instance, while P.T. Barnum was a prominent figure at the same time, there is no historical record to suggest he and Emily ever met. This is responsible historical fiction, and offers an exciting and original viewpoint and timeline of a real woman’s role in history.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
