The Boston Girl: A Novel

The Boston Girl: A Novel - Anita Diamant It's rare to read happy stories, so I liked that about the Boston Girl. Not all of it is happy stuff, but it has a generally happy ending. And although it reads like history lite, it deals with some emotionally complex things - mostly Addie's relationship with her mother. Not sure I buy that she would never have heard the n-word growing up in Boston, though.
