"A sophisticated blend of the authors' analysis of the 19th-century debate over women's rights and the letters of Catharine Beecher, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Isabella Beecher Hooker. . . . The introductory essays for each section do draw upon the latest scholarship and enhance the usefulness of the book for student and scholar."--Choice
"A fascinating account of the three Beecher sisters, participants in the debate concerning women's rights that emerged in the wake of the Civil War. As the authors deftly demonstrate, the siblings influenced each other throughout their lives, and shared a commitment to female power, although their visions often differed."--Publishers Weekly
