I enjoyed how the book tracked through history over the lifetime of the main character. A reader gets a BRIEF glimpse at some rarely covered topics, such as the orphan train, Lysol used as a contraception, silent movie actress Louise Brooks (from teenage dancer, to screen artist, to book author), orphanage & home for unwed mothers, Wichita, KS history and growth. This is a historical novel and presents an interesting perspective of moral and culture of a young adult and their chaperone -- and the growth of both as the world around them changes.
