PRAISE FOR

Company of Women

Company of Women is a perfect combination of historical fiction and business strategy. It is no surprise that Doug Villhard (an entrepreneur himself) would be inspired to write about E.G. Lewis and his entrepreneurial endeavors.

Historical Fiction Meets Business Strategy

It was so fun learning more about the life of E.G. Lewis. Having grown up in the St. Louis area my entire life, I had zero clue this man accomplished so much for the city.

Great book written about true events.

Beautifully written with twists and turns I wasn’t expecting. I found myself applauding Villhard’s beautiful character development, subtle foreshadowing, and unique ability to make a historic story come to life in a modern, exciting, funny, and thought-provoking way. I looked forward to the opening of each short chapter… never flashy, but always clever.

Fantastic read!
