Excellent read. I have read the book twice, and plan in reading it again. It is inspiring and insightful, and Dorothy Wilson gives an accurate view into the world and culture of the 19th & early 20th century, and what Elizabeth had to go through to achieve her goal. If it had not been for a few good men who helped her on her way, she may not have achieved her goal. It is not all about "I am Woman, hear me roar", but about careful planning, and diligent work towards her goal, quietly and steadily. Totally an awesome story!!!
