In the Company of Like-Minded Women explores the complexities of bonds between sisters and family at the start of the 20th century when women struggled to determine their future and the “New Woman” demanded an equal voice. Three sisters are reunited in 1901 Denver following a family rift many years before. Each sister faces critical decisions regarding love, work, and the strength of her convictions. The success of Colorado women in gaining the right to vote in 1893--twenty-seven years before the passage of national suffrage--and their continued fight for women's rights, provides the background as the story unfolds.
"This is part love story (romantic and familial) and part examinations of the early days of women entering the professional arena...passionate female characters deliver a valuable message."
-- Kirkus Reviews
"...a sweet and charming story of sisterhood, suffrage, and sincere emotion in the early 20th century. Light and breezy, Russell's writing is a delight to read with historical detail and wonderful character voices keeping readers engaged throughout."
