Terrible Virtue
by Ellen Feldman
Praise For This Book:
“Terrible Virtue is captivating, powerful, headlong and inventive—just like its subject. A beautifully wrought, compulsively readable novel. Ellen Feldman can do anything.” — Stacy Schiff, author of The Witches: Salem, 1692

“[A] highly topical novelization of the life of Margaret Sanger…. We need her story now more than ever.” — Elle

“Feldman compellingly portrays the difficult choices confronting women living in a man’s world.... This immersive, moving, and thought-provoking book is worthy of the intense discussions it’s sure to spark.” — Booklist, starred review

“How does a minimally educated, working class woman redirect the moral compass of an entire generation? Feldman shows us how in her masterful novel, Terrible Virtue. Passionate, driven, the Margaret Sanger of Feldman’s imagination is every bit as complex as the world she was determined to enlighten.” — Mary Beth Keane, author of Fever: A Novel of Typhoid Mary

“A fascinating exploration of Margaret Sanger as a visionary tour de force who left a stream of public victories and private casualties in her wake. Birth control, sex, family, work, individual need, free love, the greater good—it’s all here, historically grounded but as relevant today as it was then.” — Elizabeth Graver, author of The End of the Point

“Compelling…. An excellent choice for book groups.” — Library Journal
