    History springs to life in Barrett's period piece, that feels timeless in its thematic exploration. As an Oregonian, I had a HUGE smile on my face as the writer grounds the work in our locality, finding humor and heart and bringing women into the foreground.

    Wonderfully pleasant and humorous. Barrett does a good job of mixing history and humor. Love the location and time. Recommended as a comedy or for anyone interested in history or a good female role. Happy I read it.
