In 1880's San Francisco, intelligent, outspoken Sarah Woolson is a young woman with a goal and the fortitude to achieve it. She has always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. The trouble is, everyone believes women belong in the home--that it is not only unnatural, but against God's will for them to seek a career.
When Sarah finagles an interview with one of the city's most prestigious law firms, no one thinks she has a prayer of being hired. Except Sarah.
So begins Shirley Tallman's delightful historical mystery series which includes the novels Murder on Nob Hill, The Russian Hill Murders, The Cliff House Strangler, and more.
