really liked it
Read in January, 1998

The only reason I'm leaving off a star is that I read this ten years ago, so I can't assess it as well as a book I read yesterday. I remember that I loved reading about this woman, who had, well, balls of brass. There was nothing she wouldn't or couldn't do, back in the day when most women were expected to sit back and do as they were told. A great read!
