While the premise of The Engagement Bargain by Sherri Shackelford is compelling and the plot has several exciting and or amusing moments, the author fails to deliver a cohesive novel It starts out strong, opening with Caleb McCoy and his sister JoBeth Garrett visiting Kansas City in 1884, specifically to see Anna daughter of famed Suffragist Leader Victoria Bishop speak on Women s Rights Caleb, a veterinarian, finds himself in the right place at the right time when he hears a gun shot and sees Anna collapse in a growing pool of blood When the doctor can t be found, Caleb is the one to clean the wound and stitch the woman up Caleb now feels a responsibility to protect Anna from further harm, so he doesn t complain when the desk clerk lists the invalid as his fianc on the hotel register so she can maintain a low profile while the shooter is sought Anna, despite her wound, is a capable, resourceful woman, while Caleb is portrayed as a shy man Both are passionate about their life s work so it is not surprising that they feel a connection towards one another However, Caleb is used to I ve never read a book by Sherri Shackelford before, but when I was nosing around the Internet, it seemed she was a go to writer for historical romance Although it s not my typical genre of choice, I found myself in a historical romance kind of mood, so I thought Shackelford might be exactly what I was looking for.Unfortunately, I was a tad bit disappointed At first, I was a bit nervous that I had picked up Christian fiction, because it began with a quote from the Christian bible Although I have no issue with Christian fiction, I generally avoid it because I m not a Christian, and therefore I m not the target audience I decided to continue with the book, however, in case that first impression was wrong Fortunately, despite a few mentions of God which were appropriate for the time period and a brief heavy handed non religious woman considers putting faith in God moments, the religion aspect was light, and it did not affect my enjoyment at all.The Engagement Bargain is certainly well written, and I enjoyed reading about protagonist Anna Bishop s struggle to reconcile her desire to have a family with her work as a suffragist That being said, the book was definitely a bit judgy of women who chose to remain childless or who despised womanly activities, such as embroidery or gasp dancing We wer Since I love all things historical, I found this book to be intriguing It dealt with the suffragist movement in our country and I found it fascinating The lead female character, Anna, was raised by a single mother who was wealthy but very single minded in her belief that women didn t need a man for anything so she passed this belief to her daughter Thankfully, Anna had a series of nannies who softened her somewhat into a caring individual, unlike her mother I really did not like Anna s mother A very selfish and stern individual When Anna is shot while making a speech regarding the women getting the vote, her mother doesn t even come to her aid She just sends a telegram telling her to rest while she continues her trek around the country doing her work Caleb is the hero, and he s a very compassionate man Although he s a vet, he has to stitch up Anna s wound after she s shot because the doctor cannot be found From that moment, he becomes her protector and friend The two begin an adventure that takes them from Kansas City to Cimarron Springs, a small town where Caleb lives to 3.5 stars I haven t read many books about the suffrage movement I found the topic to be interesting and enlightening I appreciate the sacrifices women made to ensure that I have the right to vote It was good to see the movement through the eyes and mind of a fictional character.There were many light moments in this book I enjoyed the humor in a serious subject My favorite character would have to be a goat The other characters were great, but Pipsqueak stole many moments.I loved the theme that you don t have to loose your femininity to fight for rights Anna was raised to believe that in order to make a difference, she had to put aside all personal desires and focus on women s right to vote Men were an unnecessary distraction, religion was frivolous and pointless It took a near death injury for her to see that she could have a life of her on and still have a voice and m The Engagement Bargain
