“Some women prefer to stay at home and take care of the house. Let them. There are plenty who like that kind of work enough to do it. Others want something to do that will take them out among people and affairs. A woman should have the right to do any sort of work she wants to, provided that she can do it.” Constance Amelie Kopp, 1914
In Girl Waits with Gun, Amy Stewart breathes life into the true story of Constance Kopp, one of America’s first female deputy sheriffs. When the novel begins, Constance is living a quiet life in the country with her two sisters. When a ruthless factory owner destroys their buggy, a dispute over damages escalates into a life-threatening situation. Constance, bigger than the average man and not interested in love or marriage, refuses to act like a woman and takes matters into her own hands. Please join us!

“Much more than a woman-behind-the-man homage, this beautifully crafted tale is an unsentimental tribute to a woman who acted with grace and strength as her marriage crumbled.”
– Margaret Flanagan
