I truly do love to read about the women in history who defeated the odds. Women who went against rules of what society said they could or couldn't achieve. I admire their perseverance to march forward to achieve their God given dreams in order to pave the way for women today.

The book is about a woman named Kit Shannon who at 13 yea I truly do love to read about the women in history who defeated the odds. The book is about a woman named Kit Shannon who at 13 years old is thrown into an unknown world. Injustice was served and this is the main reason that she determines in her heart that she would do everything in her power to become a lawyer in order to bring back justice to those who deserve it.

Back in the 's a woman was not really expected to do nothing but to marry well and keep house. Kit Shannon was one of those women who wanted more from life. I really liked that.

City of Angels

This is really the first book that I've read from Tracie Peterson. I've read a book by James Bell in the past and I really enjoyed it. I can honestly say that I was continually in shock to learn that my original assumptions about the characters were always wrong. I thought I knew who did what and next thing I know I'm totally wrong! That's something that I do like though because me as a reader I don't want to have the usual cliche story. I want to be surprised! This story was like a mystery which was really good because I haven't read a good mystery in a long while.

It was an awesome and decent read with many twists and turns. I can't wait to read the rest of the series! Jan 05, Kathryn rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
