    Me sees suffragette romanceMe reuests that shit from the library ASAPAlso me halfway into the book what white nonsense IS this???Look The political climate in the world isn’t promising for women people of color LGBT folk disabled folk or any other marginalized group Not to say that the political climate generally is promising for us but you know what I mean Additionally the creation of art is a political act Books are art—yes even romance novels for those haters in the back; I see youA romance novel about the fight for women’s suffrage during the early 20th century is just blatantly political There’s no way around thisAnd so when I open a romance novel about marginalized people fighting for euality and recognition of their humanity I expect certain things What I do not expect however is to find that the love interest is spouting the same MAGA hat wearing bullshit that virtually every Trump voting white person says That’s a huge fucking no from me dawg And before you me saying that the book takes place in England and the author isn’t Americanstop There are oppressive white men in other countries too In fact The Scandalous Suffragette is supposedly about challenging these selfsame oppressive white men as they existed in Edwardian England So why is the effing love interest here being an oppressive white man? Why would you do thisOkay so let’s back up Heroine Violet is a suffragette who plans on dedicating her life to the Cause She is somehow forced into marrying Hero Adam an impoverished gentleman The deal they strike regarding their marriage of convenience is this Adam gets all the money Violet is allowed freedom to pursue her political agenda This sounds fine and dandy ExceptAt an annual garden party hosted at Adam’s country home Violet makes the opening speech to the gathered guests including a particular MP who represents their area of Kent Obviously this speech is an inspiring clarion call for women’s euality; also obviously the MP is enraged by the speech Said MP then approaches Violet lays hands on her and verbally abuses her Adam then steps in and the MP is sent home Violet is unharmed it seems like all will be well ExceptViolet asks Adam her husband who is supposed to support her and be her ally one uestion why did you vote for that MP?Adam’s response “I don’t support him personally I support our party”So let’s back up Violet has just been physically assaulted by a powerful political figure for voicing an opinion that this figure does not share Violet reasonably wants to know how her husband a supposed ally supports this man Adam indicates that he does not like or respect this man or otherwise think he’s a good leader but he supports the party The goddam fucking partyYou all know where I’m headed with this How many regretful white people voted for Donald Trump even though they didn’t “support him” just because they supported the Republican Party My white female coworker looked me in the face and said she hated the president but felt she had to vote for him because of the Supreme Court nominations Basically she voted for Trump a rapist so that she could have Kavanaugh another rapist Brilliant Kids I’m not going to go on but Eliza Redgold is astonishingly tone deaf if she thinks readers are willing to root for a hero who votes for oppressive psychotic white men just for reasons of party loyalty Especially because this book is supposed to be about empowering womenHow is any of this acceptable? “Sorry honey I know that terrible man just assaulted you but I’m still going to vote for him” Fuck off AdamAt what point does seeing real people in pain as a result of a politician’s nightmare regime sink in? When do you stop and consider that theoretical party philosophies do not compare to actual daily harm being perpetrated upon minorities? When is enough enough? Where is the line?I love historical romance than anything but this genre is so so toxic📌 Blog | Review Database | Twitter | Instagram | Goodreads

    An impressive amount of research underpins this compelling historical romance novel It reveals itself in the details of setting and costume of attitudes and especially in the changes the heroine Violet is fighting for I particularly liked the portrayal of family in The Scandalous Suffragette Discussion and analysis of the fight for women's right to vote tends to focus on the public conflict This novel explores the strain the cause brought to personal relationships I liked that the side characters were than cardboard cutouts of opposition The hero and heroine's romance developed far naturally and believably in this context of good hearted people holding different views and responsibilities Which brings me to Violet and Adam they are wonderful I like protagonist who are honorable as this couple is It makes their happy ever after even enjoyable They've earned it

    Marriage of convenience is my favorite trope and I love HR that contains actual history so this should've been 1000% my jam Unfortunately it did not pass the 100 page smell test The history is wallpaper at best the author tends to tell than show and there has never been a heroine in need of a Female Intelligence Society as this one If the idea of this book appeals to you do yourself a favor and seek out Beverly Jenkins's work instead

    Violet Coombes is the Heiress to The Coombes family chocolates Adam Beaufort literally catches her one night after she falls when trying to hang a banner for women As society finds out what she has been up to Adam proposes a marriage of convenience to help him regain the loss of his family fortune There is much to this story and the author doe an amazing job in giving us a little bit of History behind the women's movement for the right to vote while keeping it a Romance novel too
