The Whip is inspired by the true story of a woman, Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man. 
As a young woman in Rhode Island, she fell in love and had a child. Her husband was lynched and her baby killed. The destruction of her family drove her west to California, dressed as a man, to track down the murder. 
Charley became a renowned stagecoach driver. She killed a famous outlaw, had a secret love affair, and lived with a housekeeper who, unaware of her true sex, fell in love with her.
Charley was the first woman to vote in America (as a man). Her grave lies in Watsonville, California.

The Whip

Awesome story! I couldn't put it down. The plot was full of action and conflict revolving around the main character who is truly unique and one who you can't help but open your heart to. It was well written and easy to visualize. I loved that it was lengthy enough to fill your appetite as well. I highly recommend this novel!

Loved The Whip!

Fantastic - can't believe it is based on a true story. Charlie is a one in a million character. Living close to where the book is set brought a deeper appreciation for the terrain she conquered. A must read!

Great book!

This is an amazing book. The characters are well-developed and interesting.
