The Boston Girl

The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The Boston Girl” is an amazing story that includes a woman’s role in society in the early twentieth century, immigrant life and their adjustment to American life, child labor, it also mentions many historical events such as WWI, the Great Depression, and the flu epidemic.

Addie Baum was born in Boston in 1900 into a Jewish family. Since the beginning, she was treated as an outcast by her mother, and very early in life, she gave up on the hope to make her parents proud of her achievements and decided to become her own woman. Her love for books has led her to The Saturday Club where she met her lifelong mentors, made friendships that lasted a lifetime, and finally – the way to her independence.

Addie’s life is filled with woman empowerment, determination, heartbreaks, and of course love. It’s a great read, with fast pacing plot, and amazing characters.
