KIRKUS REVIEW

Precocious diarist Julia Ward Howe Hoffman grows up in style and the metamorphosis is recorded in her own words as her self-conscious (and malapropian) erudition mellows into mature reflection at age eighteen. It's a rich, crowded, romantic novel ""with plenty of spine in its backbone"" and no discernible moral except that life is quite a battle.
