My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Dual timelines between 1913 and 1993, this was a book with powerful feministic undertones and family bonds that were bruised and battered but endured generations. In 1913, the double-standard was alive, well, and openly rampant, and I think women will appreciate Laura’s spunk and at the same time her grace as she fought to make a serious leap into the man-run world of serious journalism. And in both timelines, an added bonus for book lovers as the story focused on some invaluable first edition classic books that go missing from the archives of the non-lending library of Lions Avenue.
