Praise for Abigail's Exchange
"This historical fiction novel set in Baltimore in the 1880s brings hope to women whose mates have a dark side, and illuminates the fascinating Women’s Exchange, which made a huge impact on struggling women of that time. Even the sweet side of courtship is revealed in Dr. Den Houter’s first novel. And every reader will want to learn about the delicious beginnings of Whitman’s Chocolates! Enjoy!"
— Katharine Crawford Robey, playwright and author of Cardinal Coat and Other Stories
"Abigail’s Exchange speaks to the power of being a strong woman in the face of the harsh constrictions of the late 1800s in Baltimore. Abigail’s resilience, beauty, and honesty take her life to another level because of her determination to achieve. It is a wonderful novel."
— Rosemary Dronchi, author of The Rossini Trilogy (Blood Feud, Retribution, and Redemption)
"In this, her debut novel, Kathryn Den Houter’s painstaking research has created a rich and accurate historical context for her characters. The well-written and compelling story of a woman finding her way in a man’s world reaches across time and space to the present day. It is an exciting and insightful story that will keep you turning the pages!"
— Frank P. Slaughter, author, The Veteran and Brotherhood of Iron
