    Cut From Strong Cloth by Linda Harris Sittig Set in 1862 Philadelphia, nineteen year old Ellen Canavan lives her life wanting to fulfill her fathers dream, to be a successful business woman. Being an Irish immigrant and a woman is not making it easier. But she is strong willed and determined to make her dreams come true. She is fighting against all odds, especially the approval of her skeptical Mother. Like mothers of that era, all she wants is to see her daughter married to a wealthy man. As Ell Cut From Strong Cloth by Linda Harris Sittig Set in 1862 Philadelphia, nineteen year old Ellen Canavan lives her life wanting to fulfill her fathers dream, to be a successful business woman. Being an Irish immigrant and a woman is not making it easier. But she is strong willed and determined to make her dreams come true. She is fighting against all odds, especially the approval of her skeptical Mother. Like mothers of that era, all she wants is to see her daughter married to a wealthy man. As Ellen travel back and forth from Philadelphia to Savannah Georgia, the civil war is about to start. But even the thought of war won't crush her dreams. A well written gripping story of a determined woman. Ellen is very likable and strong willed for that era. She has her mind set on being seen, heard and start a prosperous business despite all odds. I also liked that it was based on a true story, that of the authors distant family members. The setting is true to the times with her struggles and obstacles, which adds more drama to Ellen's story. Those who like Historical fiction (with a strong female lead) should enjoy Cut From Strong Cloth, I highly recommend to all.

    Cut from Strong Cloth is one of the best researched historical novels I have read. It is well-written and the characters are three-dimensional personalities with strengths, weaknesses, and unexpected surprises. Ellen was resourceful and intelligent, rebelling against the limitations placed on women by society of the times. She would have done well in today's world. I recommend this book to anyone who loves strong female protagonists. Cut from Strong Cloth is one of the best researched historical novels I have read.
