The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant
Anita Diamant's The Boston Girl centers around family ties, values, friendship and feminism told through the eyes of a young woman growing up in the early 1900s.

“How did you get to be the woman you are today?”  

Eighty-five-year-old Addie is asked this by her 22-year-old granddaughter and so begins her story starting in 1915, the year she made friends who helped shape the course of her life taking her to a world her parents can’t imagine - one of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women. Addie wants to finish high school, go to college, have a career and find love. 

Written with the same attention to historical detail and emotional resonance that made Diamant’s previous novels, The Red Tent and Day After Night, bestsellers, The Boston Girl is a moving portrait of one woman’s complicated life and a fascinating look at a generation of women finding their places in a changing world.
