Summary
"This book tells the story of Annie Adams Fields (1834-1915), one of the leading figures in nineteenth-century Boston's cultural circles. Although often defined in terms of her famous husband, publisher James T. Fields of Ticknor & Fields, she was, as this book demonstrates, a person of significant intellectual and social accomplishments in her own right." "Fields emerges from this biography as an exemplary woman who both absorbed and challenged the sometimes conflicting values of her time, gender, and class."--Jacket
