  • I was highly interested in this book, but felt that it dragged on for the first portion of the book to the point of tedium I will say it was an easy read, but felt that facts were presented in a chronological fashion and lacked bearing or fluidity An amazing woman, worthy of this title, and with values that rival 2009 politics and societal norms, despite living at the turn of the 20th century If one is interested in strong female biographies, I would recommend this book But beware of name droppi [...]


  • I work with Kristie Miller, so this review is surely tainted at some level But the book is gracefully written and Isabella Greenway s story replete with a move from NYC to the frontier, three marriages, a huge inheritance, election to Congress, friendships with Eleanor Roosevelt and FDR is captivating.


  • I do not usually read books on politicians, but because she was an Arizona figure I had to give it a try I wouldn t have enjoyed it as much as I did if she would have been from any other state She was a very fascinating woman though.


  • I found the first 1 2 of this book very tedious but FINALLY Bob Ferguson died and life became much interesting Interesting to see how the political reactions to the depression and WWII parallel the current situation.


  • Good read about a strong woman Interesting since the story occurs where I live Seemed like a bit much at times and the racial prejudices alive and well Maybe it s because its just like real life


  • I truly enjoyed learning about this important woman in Arizona s history Like many people who achieve greatness in their lifetimes, she endured many challenges and faced them with great courage.
