Staff Recommendation: A Short History of Women

This latest novel by a National Book Award finalist interweaves the lives of five generations of the Townsend family in numerous richly detailed and poetic miniatures. British suffragist Dorothy Trevor Townsend shares both legacy and namesake with her American granddaughter, who solely and illegally protests the Iraq war in spite of her daughter’s disapproval.
