    1. 4.5 stars. "The Renegade Queen" is the story of Victoria Woodhull, a suffragist who wanted more than just the vote for women but she wanted women to run for President, which she did herself. Even though, I fancy myself knowledgeable about history, particularly American history, I did not know much about Woodhull at all and for good reason. Some of the other great suffragettes of the time essentially had her erased from history. This is the first of a new series.Recently I've been obsessed with t [...]

    2. I have won this book by . I most honsestly say I did never hear before about Victoria Woodfull but what an interesting person she was! I am so glad to have the opportunity to get to know her a bit by this book. A woman who wanted to be president of America so she could change live for women. She did run for president. With a negro as the man to be her vice-president.The book is written out of the eyes of Victoria. I did like this a lot. I could become Victoria for a few hours.I still have to let [...]

    3. I won this book through and this is my honest opinion of The Renegade Queen. Victoria was the sixth child out of ten born into poverty. Their father had total control of the family. Their mother was there but not as any support to her children. Buck Claflin, Victoria's father began to abuse her at an early age. He made his children work to support the family. Victoria and her younger sister, Tennessee, were advertised as clairvoyants. Victoria married Canning Woodhull after one date to escape h [...]

    4. The Renegade Queen was a total disappointment for me. I read the book's description, and I thought this would be an interesting read, especially as we have a woman running for president. I was a US History teacher, and I have a particular interest in the reform movements of the 19th century and how they came to affect so many areas of public life.I think Ms. Flynn does her subject--Victoria Woodhull--a disservice. While the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father is an integral part of her [...]

    5. I know very little about American history so this book was an unusual choice for me. However, I do like to step out of my comfort zone and I'm very glad that I did. The book was concerned with the true story of the controversial figure of American feminist, Victoria Woodhull and her struggle for women's rights, at a time in history when women generally were treated as second class citizens. Her life was hard and full of mishap but Eva Flynn brings her character vividly to life, and the general g [...]

    6. I recently read a book I much anticipated, The Renegade Queen by Eva Flynn, which was about the life of the forgotten American feminist Victoria Woodhull. Even though her voice was strong it has been quieted to the nation, even in history books. It was a little surprising that Woodhull was born in Licking County, Ohio, which is the state in which I reside. I've read so much about famous people from Ohio in the 1800s lately, it was interesting to add her to the list.I vaguely remember hearing of [...]

    7. Victoria Claflin, later Victoria Woodhull who with no formal education, except for a few years, grew up in poverty and where Victoria and her siblings had to earn money for the family. Born of a father who was a con artist and a mother who was off in la-la land most of the time, Victoria and one of her siblings had to put up with their father's tyrannical behavior. Her father also sexually and physically abuses Victoria and her sister Tennessee and forces Victoria to perform as a clairvoyant. At [...]

    8. Fascinating fictional historical novel of the most controversial of the early feminists, Victoria Woodhull. This book is the first of a promised series and covers Victoria's life from her unlikely conception in a whore's tent at an evangelical revival camp meeting to her arrival in England as a more-or-less political refugee after her history making run for president of the United States in 1872. Victoria's childhood was one of abuse and neglect. A sad story and often difficult about which to re [...]

    9. You know when you’re reading a book and you’re enjoying it…en a few hours later, you’ve finished it? This was one of those books for me. It was an all night read for me, actually, but I didn’t mind sacrificing sleep to read about this very fascinating woman. I had never heard of Ms. Woodhull, which is what I think was the point, to take her from the annals of history and to finally give her a much deserved spotlight. We often hear of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, but Vic [...]

    10. Visit Raven Haired Girl for more reviews & giveawaysVictoria Woodhull is a woman known to few, I find this astonishing but not completely surprised since poignant women in history are rarely introduced in classroom environments.Flynn does a wonderful job of introducing and reintroducing this amazing woman. Woodhull was a product of a controversial and horrifically dysfuntional family. Constantly battling obstacles she carved a path for herself and became a 'first' in many positions unheard o [...]

    11. copy received from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for an honest reviewWhen I read books like "The Renegade Queen (Rebellious Times Book) by Eva Flynn I want to stand up and cheer for historical fiction authors. They really do fill in so much of history that gets left behind. I have never heard of Victoria Woodhull and I have definitely missed out. I really enjoyed learning about her and her incredible life. I think it's so appropriate to this time with elections happening-it is also a bit [...]

    12. “The Renegade Queen” is an amazing story about a woman’s struggles in a world of men. Showing a glimpse into American history, the book covers some real facts, the author managing to combine a real event with a touch of fiction. While struggling to understand the first pages, as I initially considered the beginning to be a bit dull, I came to understand why our heroine acted the way she did later in the book and from where came her resolution to change something for the women.I do believe [...]

    13. This novel is required reading for anyone interested in a more accurate understanding of the history of women’s right to vote, especially as it relates to the timeline of African American voting rights. Despite the book being fiction, it connects the political dots for me in a way that memorizing historical dates and facts out of textbooks never could. Before reading The Renegade Queen, I had no idea a woman other than Hillary Clinton had ever run for president. It seems an egregious act of er [...]

    14. *I received this book for free through Giveaways*Although the author states in her Author's note that she took the sympathetic point of view towards the novel's heroine, Victoria Woodhull, Victoria as portrayed in this novel is actually a hard character to feel sympathetic with at times. Even though she and her sister Tennessee suffered greatly from their father and their husbands, by the time they are grown and taking control of their own lives they don't really seem to be all that much better [...]

    15. This book was fascinating! I had never heard of Victoria Woodhull before I read this story. I cannot believe that her efforts were written out of suffrage cause! The author is eloquent and uses language that fits this historical time. She portrays a historically accurate picture of women during this time period, while graphic and may be a hard read for some, I appreciate that she did not gloss things over and chose to be thruthfull and accurate for these women. Would have given it a 4.5 but coul [...]

    16. It is amazing to me what and WHO historians decide are noteworthy enough for 'the books'. I realize that Renegade Queen is historical fiction but Victoria Woodhull DID exist and DID fight for female equality. Maybe it was because "Mrs. Satan" wanted equality in all aspects of lifet simply the right to vote. This was one of those books that you enjoy reading - a woman overcoming and casting off her background to not only uplift herself but others too. Thank you to the author for giving her a voic [...]

    17. Wonderful novel -- the kind that makes me love historical fiction as a genre. Biographical hist fic of a woman who could have ended up nameless and poor, forgotten and mired in poverty -- but Victoria Woodhull was made of tough stuff. Detailed review to come, but an indie pub that is worth splurging the $2.99 on!

    18. This. Sounds. AMAZING!! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! Historical fiction and feminism?? I'm sold!!!!

    19. Interesting historical fiction. I have no idea how much of it is true, but it is a fascinating, if somewhat depressing, account of a hard life and an uphill struggle. It is certainly filled with vibrant characters, most of whom you have never seen in this light before.

    20. A good readI heard the name of Victoria Woodhull and had a vague idea about her. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and could not put it down once I stared. A really good history lesson in the guise of story telling.

    21. I love historical fiction so this story intrigued my interest. About half way through though I started to find the main characters actions a little unbelievable. Overall, a good read.

    22. Interesting to learn about Victoria. I never heard about her before reading this book. Strange how history becomes glossed over at times.I did enjoy learning about this time in America's history and what life was really like.

    23. Story of Victoria Woodhull Victoria Claflin, later Victoria Woodhull who with no formal education, except for a few years, grew up in poverty and where Victoria and her siblings had to earn money for the family. Born of a father who was a con artist and a mother who was off in la-la land most of the time, Victoria and one of her siblings had to put up with their father's tyrannical behavior. Her father also sexually and physically abuses Victoria and her sister Tennessee and forces Victoria to p [...]

    24. I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review. My review is solely my opinion of the reading material provided.One of the most important lessons I learned as a history major in college is that history is written by the victors. This is clearly true in regards to the life and historical importance of Victoria Woodhull, a woman whose radical ideas and political determination have made many of the rights women have today possible. The Renegade Qu [...]

    25. Victoria Woodhull and her partner James Blood were controversial figures of their time. So controversial, that they have been all but erased from history. Victoria’s life was controversial from her conception; however she always knew that she was destined for greatness. Victoria and her sister, Tennessee are used and abused by their parents. Tennessee is set up as a healer and Victoria is proffered as a medium to speak to the dead. At a young age, Victoria is whisked away and married to a much [...]

    26. This is my first book on American history. The story is about Mrs.Victoria Woodhull who is raised in a poor family as 6th child and had an abusive childhood. She has a gift of being able to talk to spirits which her father uses to his advantage to earn money. She is tortured and kept in delirium with opium to earn money as per her father's wish. Surprisingly, Victoria has optimism and ambition in her life to fight for women equality and right to vote even though she herself is chained. She is a [...]
