Review:
"A marvelously readable book." –C. Vann Woodward, author of THE BURDEN OF SOUTHERN HISTORY

"A rare thing in American literature…an honest daughter’s-eye view of a nurturing father." –Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"It is a sure bet that sections will be anthologized as models of good writing. In addition…this book will likely grace reading lists of women’s studies classes nationwide. The book deserves every bit of this attention." –LIBRARY JOURNAL
