About the book:
The lives of three strangers collide when they travel together to the national Women’s March on Washington in January 2017. Henrietta Oldham is an elderly woman who runs a failing antique store; Birdie Jackson is a shy African-American teenager who is marching at the insistence of her feminist aunt; Emily Messer is a recent college graduate who needs more in her life than her job as a barista.
Although Henrietta, Birdie, and Emily appear to have little in common as they begin their ride from Kansas to Washington, D.C., they find common bonds in shared experiences of sexual harassment, pay inequity, self-sabotage, and even bra-stuffing. As the women begin to know and trust each other, they each start to discover their voice and cultivate the courage to share their secrets. Inspiring and appealing to women of all ages, On the March is a warm, and often funny, novel of the zeitgeist and the renewed feminist spirit of our times. It would make a terrific read for book clubs
