Her Quiet Revolution: A Novel of Martha Hughes Cannon: Frontier Doctor and First Female State Senatorby: Marianne Monson
A novel based on the life of Martha Hughes Cannon, a pioneer woman who overcame tremendous odds.
When her baby sister and her father die on the pioneer trail to Salt Lake City, Mattie is determined to become a healer. But her chosen road isn’t an easy one as she faces roadblocks common to Victorian women. Fighting gender bias, geographic location, and mountains of self-doubt, Mattie pushed herself to become more than the world would have her be, only to have everything she’s accomplished called into question when she meets the love of her life: Angus Cannon, a prominent Mormon leader and polygamist.
From the American Frontier to European coasts, Martha’s path takes her on a life journey that is almost stranger than fiction as she learns to navigate a world run by men. But heartache isn’t far behind, and she learns that knowing who you are and being willing to stand up for what you believe in is what truly defines a person.
Her Quiet Revolution is the story of one woman’s determination to change her world, and the path she forged for others to follow.
