Review: A Mad, Wicked Folly

A Mad, Wicked Folly - Sharon Biggs Waller

Wanting to read something in another time period and hearing so many rave reviews about this book, I picked it up for a rainy day read. And it was perfect.

 

Plot: This story is in the 1900′s where women and beginning to fight for their rights in society. One thing about this plot is that it is filled with great diversity in what women went through back in the day. From social stigma to arranged marriages. This plot never felt boring.

 

Love: I really like this area. Back in the day women got their social status and money from the man they marry. So naturally they had to marry up whether they liked the man or not. It really neat to explore the pressure to marry “up” and how society looked down on a man who did not have money. The comments that where made as well as the degrading names really brought this area to life for the reader.

 

Ending: The ending is so good that I’m wondering if there will be a second book. I sure hope so. It ended with a cliff hanger that certainly makes me want more.

 

If you enjoy historical with a coming of age story about a young women fighting for her place in society, then you must read this book! It jammed-packed with amazing women all changing the world one step at a time. I can’t wait to see what will happen next. A Mad,Wicked Folly is a sensational read!
