Book Review on Mike H. Mizrahi's "The Great Chattanooga Bicycle Race".

About The Book:

Chattanooga society is turned upside down as a young woman has the audacity to ride a bicycle-in bloomers!
It’s 1895. Anna Gaines, 19, struggles to conquer her insecurities after a horrible fall years ago from her beloved horse, Longstreet. On a visit with her aunt in Brooklyn, she’s drawn to the new pastime of bicycling. But back at home, cycling is a scandalous sport for a proper lady. Southern women did not engage in activities meant for men.
Anna has her eye on Peter Sawyer, president of the Cycling Club. As community outrage grows, an unexpected turn of events pits Anna against Peter in a race between the sexes.
Will Anna prove that women deserve the same right as men to ride “the wheel?” Will she choose to live a quiet, traditional life of a housewife and mother? Or will she pursue college and become one of the “new women” emerging into the twentieth century on the seat of a bicycle? What will become of the spark between Anna and Peter?
Faith, patience, and courage help Anna to become the person she was meant to be.

My Personal Review: 

The Great Chattanooga Bicycle Race was fun and captivating read. From the moment I started the first pages, I was instantly hooked. Anna is young and spirited with dreams of furthering her education and hopes to have the freedom to enjoy her favorite new pastime: cycling.

As she struggled with finding her way and standing up for her right to ride she encounters people in her community that are not what they seem and they are will do extreme things in order to put her in her proverbial place as a young woman. Determined to change their minds and stand her ground she forges ahead and I, of course, found myself cheering her on!

This was my first time reading any of Mike Mizrahi’s writings, so I wasn’t sure about his writing style or how I would like it, but the story and chapters flowed nicely making it a very easy read. The story held my attention the whole time and I think he did an amazing job with his characters. Once I started it didn’t take me long to finish it, so I definitely look forward to reading more from this author.

If you like historical fiction work and are looking for your next book to read I would highly suggest this one. I can’t wait to see what comes next from Mike Mizrahi.
