The Boston Girl
From page one I was enthralled with this coming of age story. Reminiscent of "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" - "The Boston Girl" follows Addie Baum as she learns to navigate life in the city under strict immigrant parents. Charming, heartbreaking, and captivating - readers will cheer Addie on as she tries to discover what it takes to become a modern women beholden to no man. A constant disappointment to her parents, Addie wants to use her brain to succeed in life - not work in the factories until she finds a man to marry and impregnate her. Addie wants freedom and will do whatever it takes to find her place in the changing world. Historical fiction at its finest.
