An Intriguing Story for Anyone Who Appreciates History
When I picked up this book I had no idea I was about to delve into such an intriguing story. The affect of social and familial expectations on women's lives in Civil War era America is brought to light with fresh perspective. The book ties in the industrial revolution and political atmosphere to provide a multi-layered view of the circumstances that influenced women's roles. The complexity of life for women without a husband or son to assume responsibility for them, the struggle to maintain a middle class lifestyle and the prejudices that determined a person's fate all combine to creat an compelling story of one women's life.Was this review helpful?
