In Angels at Sunset, Mach vividly describes the humiliation and trials women had to endure to have the right to a voice concerning their future. Weaving the history of women’s suffrage into an emotional, factually-accurate story, author Tom Mach makes us aware of the great privilege of voting. Coline Jenkins, a direct descendant of that famous suffragist, Elizabeth Cady Stanton—who wrote the foreword to Angels at Sunset—says we should never forget that future generations will stand on our shoulders. Mach contends that if today’s woman was fully attuned to the sufferings these heroines endured just to get the vote, she would more likely rush to the ballot box instead of conjuring up an excuse for not voting.
Look at these two photos. The top one is a photo of Tom Mach standing before the Kansas House of Representatives. The one to the right shows author Tom Mach meeting with Kansas Governor Brownback, who enthusiastically had this photo taken of the author and his latest work, Angels at Sunset. These two photos were taken as a result of Tom Mach’s original suggestion of a resolution to the Kansas legislature to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the passage of women’s suffrange in Kansas.
A senior reviewer for Midwest Book Review said that “Angels at Sunset is somewhat like the Titanic—the movie was to the real Titanic what this novel is to the real struggles faced by women in that day.” While there is a thread of fictional suspense woven through the book, the basic story of women’s suffrage from 1865 through 1920 is told in an emotional and compassionate way, and yet in reliably accurate detail.

What do the following events have in common?
- the Great Chicago Fire of 1871
- the women’s suffrage movement assassination during 1865-1920
- the assassination of President McKinley in 1901
Answer: These events are covered in an extremely well-researched historical novel, Angels at Sunset about a woman who relives these episodes as she reads a biography about herself in 1920. Little does she know she is being followed by a revengeful man who is intent on killing her and her family. Who is he, why is he following her, and why does he want her dead? (The answers lie in this book, which you will find hard to put down.)

The novel begins in 1920 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where Jessica Radford listens to the very first radio broadcast on KDKA, which broadcasts the presidential election returns. Because of the passage of the 19th Amendment, this is the first time she has ever voted. Many years earlier, she advocated against slavery and pushed for equal rights of the freed slaves. Later, she joined Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and other suffragists–not only for the right to vote but for other rights women ought to have, such as the right to speak in public, the right to have a profession, the right to have property and the right to her own children if she got divorced, as well as many, many other rights denied to them simply because they were women. It was a hard-fought struggle and Jessica relives it as she reads her a biography that her daughter had written about her. AND–all the while, unknown to her, a man is planning to kill her. How will it end?
