I had to stop listening to this audiobook version because of the narrator's inappropriately cheery tone. I will try the book book instead.

I really enjoyed learning more about the cultural changes that occurred during this time, the political history, the people, and what their daily lives were like. Unfortunately, there was also a surprisingly powerful “Little Women” tone that I did not appreciate. Then again, I didn’t really enjoy “Little Women” either so… take that for what it’s worth. The Where They Are Today ending had me tear up a bit, which was quite satisfying.

What a wonderful insightful story! The strength and tenacity of these women will lift your heart. I was glad I listened as I probably would have mutilated the names of people and places.
