Instead each comes with her own isolated agenda: to either tell off or tell all. Set in 1910, 1920, 1943 and 1964, in a background of battles for women's rights and civil rights, their writings reveal shocking secrets about unfaithful Four generations of women meet at their dining room table to write about their year of awakening. That's their assumed agreement anyway. Instead each comes with her own isolated agenda: to either tell off or tell all. Set in 1910, 1920, 1943 and 1964, in a background of battles for women's rights and civil rights, their writings reveal shocking secrets about unfaithful hearts, lost loves, and unwanted pregnancy. Ruby Wright: As a genteel great-grandmother, Ruby is the springboard for her daughter's fight for women's right to vote, but at an agonizing price ... and not so genteel revelations. Bess Wright-Pickering: Ruby's daughter is orchestrating this project but her intent is to get long-awaited answers to painful questions.

Jesi Pickering: 19-year old Jesi only cares about 1964 and her hidden interest in the Civil Rights movement. She stubbornly remains silent. But with prodding, she eventually writes about why she keeps her lover to herself. Although the youngest and the weakest, her tragic store will be the catalyst.

    This book took the reader through four generations of women from fighting for women's right to vote to the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. These four women showed great strength. We take so much for granted living in these times. Maybe the days are ahead when we will have to take an uncomfortable stand for what is right!

    Wonderfully woven. This was a beautiful story of 4 generations of strong women making their way through life trials. I loved the way the author was able to weave this story together. Initially i struggled to connect the chapters but fell in love with these women and looked forward to each separate chapter.

    We've come a long way, girls This was a very interesting story covering a subject still in the headlines today. We're even looking at the very real possibility of having our country's first woman president. It was eye opening to follow the struggles for equality from generation to generation . I've lived thru four generations in my own life that brought even further changes. I wish I could know what my granddaughters will experience in their lifetimes.

This particular book, though a very good story, was a little hard to follow as it jumped back and forth with the women telling portions of the story. However the writing and editing were excellent and I very much recommend it to you.
