BLOG TOUR: The Wrong Kind of Woman by Sarah McCraw Crow

 I'm really excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for The Wrong Kind of Woman by Sarah McCraw Crow. I received a copy for honest review from the publisher. Thanks so much to Mira Books and Sarah McCraw Crow for letting me be a part of the tour.

Synopsis:A powerful exploration of what a woman can be when what she should be is no longer an option 
In late 1970, Oliver Desmarais drops dead in his front yard while hanging Christmas lights. In the year that follows, his widow, Virginia, struggles to find her place on the campus of the elite New Hampshire men's college where Oliver was a professor. While Virginia had always shared her husband's prejudices against the four outspoken, never-married women on the faculty--dubbed the Gang of Four by their male counterparts--she now finds herself depending on them, even joining their work to bring the women's movement to Clarendon College.
Soon, though, reports of violent protests across the country reach this sleepy New England town, stirring tensions between the fraternal establishment of Clarendon and those calling for change. As authorities attempt to tamp down "radical elements," Virginia must decide whether she's willing to put herself and her family at risk for a cause that had never felt like her own.
Told through alternating perspectives, The Wrong Kind of Woman is an engrossing story about finding the strength to forge new paths, beautifully woven against the rapid changes of the early 70s. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts;  This was a sweet and powerful story about a woman finding her own way. After Virginia's husband dies suddenly, her life changes completely. She has to decide what to do with her future, decide who she is going to be. It's a really strong story about being a woman and fighting for your rights.
This book does have a bit of a slow start to it, but it eventually hits that sweet spot and tells a very interesting story. It's told in alternating perspectives. I was never bored with the book, I was always interested to see where it was going to go next.
Sarah McCraw Crow has a really nice writing style. I liked it.
The Wrong Kind of Woman tells an important story about the power of women. It tells the story of a woman coming into her own with the help of other women. It's an important story. I'd definitely recommend giving this one a read. 



 Sarah McCraw Crow grew up in Virginia but has lived most of her adult life in New Hampshire. Her short fiction has run in Calyx, Crab Orchard Review, Good Housekeeping, So to Speak, Waccamaw, and Stanford Alumni Magazine. She is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Stanford University, and is finishing an MFA degree at Vermont College of Fine Arts. When she's not reading or writing, she's probably gardening or snowshoeing (depending on the weather).
