Product description

Review

" Wood's satisfying historical feels true to its era yet powerfully relevant to women's lives today." - Publishers Weekly

"This important work of historical fiction brings to life the strength and resolve of a nineteenth-century woman overshadowed by men and overlooked by history books." - Booklist

"Tracey Enerson Wood raises Emily Warren Roebling from the historical depths, bringing to vivid life the story of the woman who saved the Brooklyn Bridge." - Anne Lipton, M.D., Ph.D., Putting the Science in Fiction and Harlequin Creator Fund Recipient

"The Engineer's Wife is historical fiction at its finest. Tracey Enerson Wood crafts the powerful and poignant story of Emily Warren Roebling, the compelling woman who played an instrumental role in the design and construction of the Brooklyn Bridge. This is necessary fiction for our time-paying tribute to women's overlooked contributions and reminding us of the true foundations of American history." - Andrea Bobotis, author of The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt

"Who really built the Brooklyn Bridge? With its spunky, tough-minded heroine and vivid New York setting, The Engineer's Wife is a triumphant historical novel sure to please readers of the genre. Like Paula McLain, Tracey Enerson Wood spins a colorful and romantic tale of a storied era." - Stewart O'Nan, author of West of Sunset

"Well-researched with great attention to detail, The Engineer's Wife is based on the true story about the exceptional woman who was tasked to build the Brooklyn Bridge. Though the great bridge would connect a city, it would also cause division and great loss for many. Tracey Enerson Wood delivers an absorbing and poignant tale of struggle, self-sacrifice and the family transformed by the building of the legendary American landmark during the volatile time of women's suffrage, riots and corruption. A triumphant debut not to be missed!" - Kim Michele Richardson, bestselling author of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
