Description 

Being an independent woman in 1913 London is certainly empowering, but Emmy Nation is tired of the inescapable damp seeping through her worn shoes and the hopeless grumblings of her stomach.

When she receives an offer from Scotland Yard to boost her typist income by spying on the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), Emmy jumps at the chance. But as she grows closer to the WSPU women the lines begin to blur, and when a painful part of her past resurfaces Emmy begins to question her choices.

​How far are you willing to go to secure your equality?

My Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Emmy Nation, Undercover Suffragette takes place in London in the early 1900’s. Although it’s historical fiction, L. Davis Munro does a good job of painting a picture of what it was like for a single woman to live at that time.

Emmy Nation makes very little money working as a typist and she has barely enough to survive. I admire her independence and courage, and when she takes a job spying on the suffragettes, she is confronted with issues she never thought about before. 

I learned a lot from Emmy Nation, Undercover Suffragette about what women in the early 1900’s did for the women of today. I hadn’t thought about it before and I can’t imagine feeling like all men are superior or being treated like someone’s possession. We’ve definitely come a long way.

Anyone who likes historical fiction will like Emmy Nation, Undercover Suffragette.

    Thank you for your review! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the book. I agree, I can’t imagine living in that time period as a woman. So much has changed in the past 100 years!

      It has! I remember stories my grandma told me about being a woman back then…I can’t imagine.
