How far would you go in the fight for equal rights?
It is 1868, New York City, on the eve of the Gilded Age. Spiritualist TENNESSEE CLAFLIN is smart, sexy and sometimes clairvoyant. But it is her sister, VICTORIA WOODHULL who is going to make history when she becomes the first woman to run for President of the United States.
From Washington Heights, to Washington, DC comes a true American Herstory. Filled with lust, ambition and betrayal, this is the fight for sexual equality.
"Hayes writes with such care and authenticity, that the reader will likely be unsure where the history ends and the fiction begins.... A lifelike portrait of two remarkable (and remarkably modern) women, and an immersive dive into a colorful era's scammers, activists and elites."
- KIRKUS REVIEWS
"Naked Truth is a smooth fast read. Carrie Hayes' marvelous interlacing of history with the narrative sparks an American story as well as a woman story. She has made this pair of wily sisters and their slickster father vivid and timeless."
