This book seems to have been very well researched and contains some interesting and little known historical facts. Sometimes it felt like the author was flooding us with so much information that I had to put the book down for a while. I wish there had been more information on Victoria's early life which might have given insight into her strong personality and independent beliefs and actions. Since the book promised to reveal "The Many Lives of Victoria Woodhull", I would have liked to know more about Victoria Woodhull, the person, rather than just her actions and how she fit into the history of her times. With that said, I did learn a LOT from this book and it made me want to read more about Mrs. Woodhull.

Wonderful story about a woman way ahead of her time. If you can put yourself in her place you can understand why she though the way she did.
It was the time of suffragats and the time of equal rights for blacks and women. It was also a time when spiritualism was very popular.

Great story!!

A very comprehensive study of a woman so amazing it is hard to believe she really existed. I enjoyed it a great deal.

I learned much from this book. I never knew as well as many others that a woman ran for President 1860. This Woodhull opened the door for woman rights.
She did a lot of things that was not very lady like. She did what she had to do.
Good reading.

Wonderful discovery and exposition of new information about an exceptional woman. Well written and engaging, this book conveys the spirit, tenacity, and audacious behavior of the two sisters who stood for woman emancipation in the Victorian Era, Victoria Claflin Woodhull Martin and Tennessee Celeste Claflin Cook. Amazing tale of their rise from poverty in America to become royalty and peerage in Europe. Great read!

Ms. Underhill brought the subject to life. I could not put the book down. A very important historical figure is explained with balance, insight and and scholarship.
I was surprised that Amazon had this on their front page. Victoria Claflin Woodhull Martin is a distant relation
on my Mother's side. There is a Claflin Familly Association that meets yearly in July and we just celebrated
our 155th continuous reunion. We have had quite a few of our reunions at the Claflin-Richard House in Wenham,Ma.
I own this book and found it extremely informative and very interesting. I have been to Tewekesbury, England
and have seen the abbey where there is a Commemorative plaque honoring her. I have also been to Bredon's Norton
and have had dinner. It's a beautiful stately mansion. In 1988 The State of Ohio erected a marker in Homer.
Ohio to honor her. There are many other books on her life and times that are also worth reading.
