    1. This story follows one woman s escape from virtual servitude to the ranks of the suffragettes and finally to her ultimate dream She learns and experiences a great deal in a relatively short period of time Included are a healing, a beautiful brief love affair, and a rather traditional, but charming happy ending I could not put this book down I was simply mesmerized.Elizabeth, who started out as Lizzie, must leave her dominating and brutalizing preacher man father This remarkable escape happens in [...]


    2. The description made Votes for Vixens sound like it would be similar to the classic The Bostonians by Henry James I hoped that the characters and their lesbian relationship might be engaging, and that the book might be overtly feminist Tara met all my expectations I enjoyed reading Votes for Vixens far than The Bostonians.I also found it to be an accurate reflection of the time period, its politics and its s Although this is a novel that deals with a lesbian relationship and there is some ero [...]


    3. hazelthewitch 2013I hadn t read any books by this author when I spotted Votes for Vixens But I was instantly intrigued because of the word vixens in the title, and because of the cover The synopsis sounded great as well.So I bought an e copy for my Kindle and started reading immediately And I wasn t disappointed Even though this book is quite short, Chevrestt managed to flesh out most of the characters well, which is impressive I also like how the various emotions and things like hopelessness, f [...]

    5. I wasn t sure what to expect when I started this novella I knew it was a subject I m interested in women s suffrage and a love story between two young women caught up in the movement I knew there would be sex But from the opening scene, it went places I didn t expect This story doesn t follow a predictable path and that is one of the reasons I enjoyed it so much, despite some historical anomalies that distracted me For the record, the important aspects of the story the women s fight for the vote [...]


    6.

    10. Votes for Vixens sounded like it d be just my cup of tea when I first saw it I was quite surprised that it was far different than what I was expecting That s not a bad thing though I quite enjoyed the story, far than I thought I would when I started reading.Set in 1919, Lizzie is a preacher s daughter who s father is quite controlling and downright abusive When she finds out that he denied her hand to the town s most eligible bachelor, she snaps She escapes her father, leaves home and decides t [...]


    11. I was going into this book thinking there was going to be a lot of f f relations with some history thrown in When in actuality it was the other way around I enjoyed this book tremendously This book takes on a journey through the National Woman s Party of 1919 when they were fighting for women s rights to vote You meet Elizabeth Lizzie Johnson who is from a small town in Kansas She is silently rebelling against her father by reading articles about the fights women are putting up against the gover [...]

    13. thetbrpile.weebly 1 post 2Freaking fabulous This time period isn t used often and that s such a shame The author did a stunning job with the details and language It really made me feel like I jumped back in time Elizabeth was a very well written character She was someone I wanted to see succeed in life Between the likable characters and the excellent plot, this was a must read There s some great history references in here I would definitely describe the sex as sensual and hot She had emotion an [...]


    14. I have read several different books by Ms Chevrestt as well as some of her work as Sonia Hightower I am a definite fan of her writing, though I must say that Votes for Vixens is definitely my favorite This story is amazing from the start and will leave you wanting I highly recommend it.


    15. It was an exciting and moving account of a suppressed young woman standing up for herself against the patriarchal cultures and exploring her own sexuality and own desires The writing style was a bit too simple for me sometimes, but otherwise, it was a good read.
