An immersive journey back to the 1850s when the American dream was possible for any man willing to work for it. But what about a woman? Or an immigrant's son? Queen of the West tells an unlikely couple's story of love, ambition and striving for a more equitable America.

Feisty, eighteen-year-old Annie reluctantly moves with her family from New York City to Cincinnati, the booming Queen City of the West, leaving behind the culture and scant opportunities for women. She meets handsome Max, an aspiring capitalist from the Over-the-Rhine immigrant neighborhood. They bond through their common ambitions to fight the established order in pursuit of their dreams. Annie is drawn to the National Women's Movement but discovers that fighting for women's rights smacks against society's expectations and the restrictions of a traditional life with Max. She must ultimately choose between love and independence to fight for the cause.

A good book club selection with plenty, including a coming of age love story, feminist struggles, class and immigrant discrimination, politics and media bias - contemporary elements with a bit of history thrown in
