Book title: The Steep and Thorny Way by Cat Winters

Book Beginning: 
July 1, 1923: I drew a deep breath and marched into the woods behind my house with a two-barreled pistol hidden beneath my blue cotton skirt.
Friday 56: 
'People shut me up at my trial,' Joe had told me at the pond. 'No one, not even my own lawyer, let me speak, as if they'd all gotten paid to keep me quiet.'
Comment: I am pretty excited to start this book, set in Oregon, my state of origin. It deals with the topics of racism and the Ku Klux Klan. It is also a re-imagining of Hamlet.
