Format: Hardcover
I am taking children's literature at our local community college and we had to find a recently written historical fiction book to read and comment on so off the library I went. While I'm not big into reading, I had a hard time putting this book down. The author did a fantastic job at bringing history to life. Never did I feel the story was forced. Never did I feel the facts were boring. Never did I feel the author was trying to make the book authentic by adding in unnecessary information about life in the 1920's. The book just flowed. I learned so much about the passage in Tennessee. Really, a teacher could do an entire unit for weeks and weeks on this book. Awesome read!

While the book itself is fiction, it brings history alive for older primary kids to get a glimpse of what happened during this time! Kudos to the author, my daughter was properly outraged by the treatment of black people as well as women.

Format: Hardcover
In the early 1900s, choices for women were limited. For one, women were expected to marry. This was the case with Violet Mayhew's older sister. Chloe, a pioneer for women's rights, was at odds with her parents. Not wanting that fate, she leaves for New York and never returns. Her parents seemed relieved Chloe left, but Violet wasn't.

Three years after her sister's disappearance, Violet finds some letters in her mother's drawer addressed to her from Chloe. After Violet reads the letters, she decides to find her sister. She begins in New York, but her sister has already left. Now she must travel down south where she will be forced to hang out with what her parents termed as the "wrong kind of people". In the end, she'd make up her own mind.

This is a wonderful historical fiction book about the beginnings of women's rights and the struggles to get the freedom we have today.

Karen Schwabach's THE HOPE CHEST tells of one Violet, a young lady on the run from her parents in 1917 - and in search of a sister who has left to journey to New York. Violet's search for her sister leads her on to Tennessee, where Chloe is fighting for women's rights, involving Violet in a new world of women's rights. THE HOPE CHEST brings to life early women's suffrage efforts and makes for an adventure-filled read.
