Angels at Sunset by noted Kansas author Tom Mach Tells the story of Jessica Radford, a writer who is at the very first radio broadcast on KDKA in 1920 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania as it broadcasts the presidential election returns. Because of the passage of the 19th Amendment, this is the first time she has ever voted. Jessica has joined with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and other suffragists for not only for the right to vote but for other rights women ought to have, such as the right to speak in public, the right to have a profession, the right to have property and the right to her own children if she got divorced, and many, many other rights denied to them simply because they were women. It was a hard-fought struggle and Jessica relives it as she reads her a biography that her daughter had written about her. And, all the while, unknown to her, a man is planning to kill her. How will it end?
