    From Boston's social underworld emerges Verena Tarrant, a girl with extraordinary oratorical gifts, which she deploys in tawdry meeting-houses on behalf of "the sisterhood of women." She acquires two admirers of a very different stamp: Olive Chancellor, devotee of radical causes and marked out for tragedy; and Basil Ransom, a veteran of the Civil War who holds rigid views concerning society and women's place therein. Is the lovely, lighthearted Verena made for public movements or private passions?

    "boring..."
    Overall

    I really hated this book, and I've never written that in a review before. It was a chore to get through this one. I hung in to the end, because that is my nature, but I was celebrating when it was over. I've read so many Audible books and enjoyed the vast majority. This was among the worst 10%. There is almost no plot, it moves so slowly, and even the characters were shallow. Just not my cup of tea.....
