Naked Truth or Equality, the Forbidden Fruit
Genre: Historical fiction
Based on a true story. New York City, 1868. They beguiled the suffragists, seduced millionaires and answered to no one. Spiritualist sisters, Victoria Woodhull and Tennessee Claflin were independent, politically progressive free thinkers… And the Establishment vowed to destroy them. “Manipulation, ambition and seduction rule the day.” (Publishers Weekly)
“An audacious debut” (US Review of Books)
In New York City, on the eve of the Gilded Age, Tennessee Claflin is smart, sexy and sometimes clairvoyant. But it is her sister, Victoria Woodhull who makes history as the first female candidate for President of the United States. It begins with the seduction of the wealthiest man in America. Then they launch an offensive on the suffragist elite, because together, Tennessee and Victoria are a force of Nature. That is until their backstabbing family takes them to court and their carefully spun lives unravel out in public and in the press.
“I thought this novel was brilliant from start to finish. It is fresh, it is vibrant and the story is one that has been waiting to be told.” (Coffee Pot Book Club)
