really liked it

OMG, feminist historical novel with vivid characterization and realistic yet page-turning plot and tons of historical texture and detail. could not put it down. starts off 1848 on the boat to nyc, has a great big fabulous chunk in nyc, and then the main character goes and works on a boat on the erie canal! in drag!

a really great book, about all my favorite stuff. might not be quite as exciting to you if you don't share some of the same loves. but i LOOOVED it!

"When I found the place at last, another problem faced me. The packet boats that take passengers do not begin at Albany. It it necessary to take the train to a city farther west — Schenectady, a strange name."
