Interesting. I like that this book made it seem like "well of course she would step up and manage the family, bills, house, farm, business and not wait for a man to tell her to do so, or allow her to do so." Who really knows how it happened, but nice to think some people just took care of businesse without some socio-political movement frinted by entertainers to drive them to it, or give them cause to "demand" the right. What a great lady, hope this version closely resembles to the truth!
As the title suggests, I felt this book was more about the era and not so much about the woman. I would have liked to know more about her.
