“Caroline Healey Dall’s writings will become a keystone to our understanding of nineteenth-century New England . . . a true historical find.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Daughter of Boston provides a fascinating glimpse into a woman’s life in nineteenth-century New England.”–Anne E. Stein, Chicago Tribune

Daughter of Boston is a major act of recovery, an important and even a timely work, restoring to us the full and satisfying presence of an extraordinary, active, strong and controversial woman of letters.”–Robert D. Richardson, author of Emerson: The Mind on Fire

“Anyone who has contemplated the conundrum of the glass ceiling that challenges contemporary women would do well to read this excerpted diary of social reformer Caroline Healey Dall for its reflection upon the conflicts that women faced a century and a half ago . . . An illuminating record of the controversies that continue to rankle American society today.”-Nancy Rubin Stuart, ForeWord Magazine
