The Engineer’s Wife (by Tracey Emerson Wood) … interesting book about the wife of the engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge

I looked forward to reading the book about Emily Warren Roebling who was the wife of the chief engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge.  Emily was an amazing woman and her determination to accomplish things despite the fact that she was a woman…who were not respected in that day and time.

The author obviously did a lot of research.  I also appreciated all of the efforts Emily put into the suffrage movement.  She was a strong woman and, despite the lack of affection from her husband, was willing to accomplish awesome feats.

Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Landmark for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
