By Anita Diamant
Hardcover, 322 pages
The Boston Girl follows one woman's life through a period of dramatic change. Watching Addie Baum escape the constrictions of her upbringing, find ways through literature and work to broaden her own appreciation of the world, and in retrospect draw the outlines of a life fully lived is engrossing and captivating. Anita Diamant has created a wonderful portrait of a woman who both expresses and helps create the definition of modern woman. And she does so while making the early years of the past century come to full-blooded life.
