5As War rages on in Europe in 1917, Kathleen "Cat" Bowen knows there is another big fight to finish at home. Her mother, sister, aunt, and many other women around her have all become suffragists to the disapproval of many men - including Cat's uncle and her father. Cat and her cousin, Alma, want to join the picket lines, but they are too young. The excitement builds as the picket lines have lasted more than a week and it seems there might be hope in the horizon! News reaches far out of the picket lines to Washington D.C. and many women from all over the United States have come to participate in the fight for the right to vote. On the home front, as the United States gets ready for war, Cat sees the changes at home too as women take a much more active role in the society. Her cousin, Alma, helps with the Red Cross over in Europe after running away from home and her problems. Cat suffers a blow with the unexpected arrest of her mother. Can Cat survive more things to come?
