Overview

The true story of a woman's continuing education - not just of the mind, but of the heart and spirit - began in Jill Ker Conway's best-selling The Road from Coorain. Now, we join her, 25 years old, in Boston, where she has just gained admission to Harvard. Later she will marry a professor, become a teacher herself and eventually assume the presidency of Smith College.

Conway vividly portrays the daily dilemma married women face: how to live with a spouse and grow fully into oneself. This very private woman discovers the warrior within, fighting for equality in her career as well as equality for all women.

"An absorbing, charming story of a life lived fully." (Publishers Weekly)
