KIRKUS REVIEW

A charming girls' book of the period of the 1830's. Sylvia's rebellion against old-fashioned and constraints is presented in warm, absorbing detail, with plenty of humor, love interest and a good sense of family background. There are glimpses of country customs in New England, of hearty eating , of literary Boston of the young Emerson and his group, of Ticknor's book shop, Underground Railway beginnings, new inventions, detailed dress and fashion notes -- and a happy ending with Sylvia off to study, write and perhaps in the end, to marry the brilliant young student of her choice. First rate reading.
