Confiding their story to her diary as it unfolds, Lilli takes listeners from an impoverished charity to a wealthy family's home to the perilous streets of a burgeoning American city. Lilli de Jong is at once a historical saga, an intimate romance, and a lasting testament to the work of mothers. "So little is permissible for a woman," writes Lilli, "yet on her back every human climbs to adulthood."

informative and depressing
I enjoyed the historical setting and the culture of the Friends. The writing was good . The story was interesting but way too sad. The dwelling on the sad events and the constant description of nursing babies made me fast forward sometimes.
