My Notorious Life
A NovelBook - 2013
This sweeping, evocative, and absolutely unforgettable novel about the charismatic and passionate Axie Muldoon who changed the lives of countless women was inspired by a real midwife who became one of the most controversial figures in Victorian New York City. A love story, a family saga, and a brilliant rendering of a historical time, this is also a moving and nuanced commentary on an important topic: women's control of their bodies. But ultimately, it is the story of one woman making her indomitable way in a difficult world, with her fierce and vibrant spirit.
