I am reviewing a copy of From Suffragette to Homesteader through Fernwood Publishing and Netgalley:
Ethel Marie Sentance wrote a memoir for her husband Clarence in 1952. It was given to him for a present on their fortieth wedding anniversary on August.19th of that year. The memoir began in 1883 and details Ethel’s compelling story. When she was in her early twenties Ethel became a suffrage the, because she became frustrated with the inequality women faced.
Ethel participated in rallies, sold Suffragette papers, took part in meetings. In 1912 she married and relocated to the parties of Saskatchewan in order to become a homesteader.
I give From Suffragette to Homesteader five out of five stars!
