Two special ladies from my books are Abigail Everett and Henrietta Dexter. Both of them are from my Edwardian historical works, ‘The Maybrook Trilogy’.
Abigail is a woman that suffered the early loss of her mother and the wrath of her abusive father. After being separated from her first love, she becomes a suffragette and broad thinking woman, ahead of her time. Wearing trousers, being an activist in support of the women’s vote, and showing one special little girl how to reach for any star she desires is Abigail’s way of making the world brighter one day at a time.
Henrietta is the daughter of a small town judge. She begins in the trilogy as a snobbish, apathetic, and perfectly traditional woman of the era. As the trilogy continues, she begins to face the things about herself she does not like and begins to see the importance of embracing her self-worth. Henrietta may never be an outward crusader of the woman’s movement but in her heart, she has begun to see the value of her thoughts, her abilities, and her strengths.
