The Cure for Dreaming; Cat Winters

The Cure for DreamingThe Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wasn't thrilled with the mixture of nascent feminism (the right to vote figures largely, ditto independent women) and the occult (the mesmerism, Dracula). If the author was trying to make the point that the male-dominated society of 1800s Oregon was sucking the life-blood out of the women, well... she made it. Quite strongly. Maybe a little less stridency would have been better? I did love the photos!
