Susan Bethany

Midwest Book Review

Victoria Woodhull is one of the most fascinating but forgotten characters in American history.  She deserves to be better known by anyone who cares about gender equality and the ongoing fight to make America a more tolerant and just country— kudos to Neal Katz for bringing her story to life for a new generation of readers.

Debby Applegate


In smoothly-written and compulsively readable chapters, Katz takes his readers through the young women’s difficult early years and entrance into the broader stage of adult life. His research is obviously extensive, but his novel’s exposition is very naturally woven into the internal dramatics of his narrative, and his large cast of characters includes plenty of historical figures, all well-realized. … This is a very promising opening chapter to a series that feels long overdue.

I can’t believe this in Neal’s first book. Incredibly well written, this is an important work. I see literary accolades and a long running series.

Victor Villaseñor

National bestselling author of Rain of Gold, Three time Pulitzer Prize nominee, and author of Revenge of a Catholic Schoolboy

This is a very well written historical fiction novel that immediately draws you in with believable dialogue and a subject matter that makes you want to know more. … Every step along the way, Katz does a wonderful job of making you feel like you were really there.

I am impressed with the personality profiles. You clearly grasp the long term, psychological impact of the fugue coping mechanism, or taking flight, the identity disappearing, or creating an alternate, safer reality in response to trauma. Well done.
