Seneca Falls Inheritance

by Miriam Grace Monfredo

Monfredo’s heroine, librarian Glynis Tryon, makes her first appearance in this book set in the small town of Seneca Falls during the bustle of America’s first 1848 Women’s Right Convention. Following the exploits of Glynis, who uses her natural curiosity to investigate a murder, is a perfect way to bring the events and personalities of the period to life. Monfredo’s link between the events of the Convention to the New York legislature’s enactment of the Married Women’s Property Act, the first of its kind in America, is nicely done. The author’s historical notes in the back provide short biographies of the principle women’s rights players and events.
