Lawyer is an unusual blend
of romance novel and historical treatise on the law and its
impact on women in 19th
century America . It is a page-turner that educates,
infuriates, and inspires. Its dialogue reads almost like a
play set on a very large stage. Rymer writes with both and
emotionality and rationality rarely combined in one book.”

This book is
well-written, engaging, and rich in historical detail. Some of
the dialogue was so real that I thought I was there.
