The best books: Heroines with unconventional jobs in the West during the Gilded Age
When I was in high school, I remember my great-grandma telling me that she envied me for being born during an era where I could choose any career field that I wanted. Great-grandma was a fiesty woman with strong opinions and I know she wanted a career of her own, but that wasn't an option for her.
Because of great-grandma, I've long respected women who bucked the trends of society and fought to make their mark on the world in their own way.
Without further ado, here's my top 6 picks for Christian Gilded Age Heroines with Unconventional Jobs:
The Roaming Adventurer by Karen Baney - features a female Surveyor.
To Disguise the Truth by Jen Turano - features an Inquiry Agent (Private Detective).
Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist - features a Telephone Operator
A Man with a Past by Mary Connealy - features a woman Rancher
At Love's Command by Karen Witemeyer - features a woman Doctor
The Problem Child by Tess Thompson - features a woman Veterinarian who also wants to be an Olympic Ski Jumper
