About

Overview

Bridie’s life has been a series of wrongs. The potato famine in Ireland. Being sent to the poorhouse when her mother’s new job in America didn’t turn out as hoped. Becoming an orphan. Then there’s the latest wrong — having to work for a family so abusive that Bridie is afraid she won’t survive. So she runs away to Seneca Falls, New York, a town full of possibility in 1848. There, she makes friends with Rose, a girl with big dreams. Rose helps Bridie get a job with the strangest lady she’s ever met, Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who is planning a convention to talk about the rights of women. For Bridie and Rose, it’s a new idea. But they are sick of all the wrongs. Maybe it’s time to fight for their rights!
