really liked it

A dense and detailed biography of Ruth Rappaport. I felt as though the details, based on research and documents, sometimes went off on possibly unrelated tangents, often a bit tedious due to the amount of detail, but the author usually does a pretty good job tying in the detail to the main narrative. Aside from those tangents, this is a dry and maybe tedious for some, account. No doubt accurate, and valuable for the research done, but not one that called me back to keep on reading when I put it down. Also, although I got a lot of facts about who Ruth Rappaport was and what she did, the narrative of who she was as a person came across as lacking, despite tid bits thrown in to shed light on her as a person.
