The Lady's Guide To Petticoats And Piracy

by Lee, Mackenzi
Three strong ladies take the helm of this great sequel

Following in the wake of the first book in the series, this title takes on the story of Felicity and her daring adventure to find herself. As we know of her from the first book (The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue), she's sassy, spirited and not about to let any man try and control her destiny. But, being as she's a woman in the 18th century wanting to go into the field of medicine, this is an uphill battle, and she knows it. You deserve to be here, she reminds herself again and again, and it's a powerful message that carries through the whole book. This book is about women carving their places out in a world where men try to dictate their whole lives and feel that marriage is an honor and not a burden. Sim, a Muslim sailor, who joins Felicity on her quest is trying to find a balance between her dreams and her father's. Johanna, Felicity's once best friend from childhood, returns to remind us that even softness can be an armor too. As this trio finds itself drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery behind Johanna's mother, they are each challenged to justify their place in their own world. With a great and wonderful dash of fantasy amidst an articulately researched historical adventure novel, this story has you laughing, crying and rooting for these women to take their rightful places in their own world.
