In the year 1900, Olivia Mead is a suffragist—an independent young lady who fights for women’s rights. Her father plans to cure her of her “rebellious” ways by hiring a hypnotist to manipulate her thinking process, but Olivia is too stubborn to let some mystical acts change her mind.
The Cure for Dreaming is a young adult historical fiction novel with some paranormal and romance elements. This book deals with the mistreatment of women in the time era, and portrays the idea of women being confined to housework and taking care of children for the rest of their lives, and husbands thinking for their wives, negatively.
Parents should be aware that it contains:
• Minor profanity
• Violence (references to beating women, a character is extremely ill, a woman is hypnotized against her will)
• Some descriptions of people looking like monsters (not really scary, but might disturb younger readers)
• References suggesting sex
• Drinking and smoking
