Paula Blanchard plunges us into the New England literary life of that time, into the circles of Henry James, Lowell, Howells, Whittier, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. In chapters of interest to contemporary feminists, she also delves into Jewett's close relationship with women - from the young Willa Cather on whom she had a lasting influence, to the gifted artist and book designer Sarah Wyman Whitman and the flamboyant "Mrs. Jack" Gardner, and especially to Annie Fields, her partner in a sustaining "Boston marriage."
