Summary
Silk factory owner Henry Kaufman crashed his car into the Kopp sisters' buggy. Six-foot-tall Constance, pigeon-keeper Norma, and youngest sister Fleurette want an apology and buggy damages paid for. He refuses to pay. Instead Henry and his shady friends harass and threaten the sisters. Constance goes to Sheriff Heath, who gives the two oldest women guns and teaches them to shoot. Eventually in the court system, Henry Kaufman is made to suffer the consequences.
Critique
The novel is based on actual events and people from Bergen County, New Jersey. This a fun story of women's determination in an unexpected way for the times. With a new job for Constance in the sheriff's department, entertaining sequels are forthcoming.
