Descrição

For four young immigrant women living in Boston's North End in the early 1900s, escaping tradition doesn't come easy. But at least they have one another and the Saturday Evening Girls Club, a social pottery-making group offering respite from their hectic home lives-and hope for a better future.

Ambitious Caprice dreams of opening her own hat shop, which clashes with the expectations of her Sicilian-born parents. Brilliant Ada secretly takes college classes despite the disapproval of her Russian Jewish father. Stunning Maria could marry anyone yet guards her heart to avoid the fate of her Italian Catholic mother, broken down by an alcoholic husband. And shy Thea is torn between asserting herself and embracing an antiquated Jewish tradition.

The friends face family clashes and romantic entanglements, career struggles and cultural prejudice. But through their unfailing bond, forged through their weekly gathering, they'll draw strength-and the courage to transform their immigrant stories into the American lives of their dreams.

    Wonderful book! The development of all four characters was very well presented. Life in the early 1900's Boston was depicted so believably. The story of the friendship between the young immigrant women & the support received from the women directing their club was very touching & real. The audio presenter was excellent & made this especially enjoyable!

    Wonderful, sweet book about the friendship between 4 young women in the early 1900's. The dreams for their future and the limitations they had to deal with in life and love. Just what I needed for an interesting distraction. The narrator was marvelous!!
