The only child of womens rights leaders Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell, Alice was a lively, wilful, intellectually precocious girl who tried to carve out her own identity while growing up in the midst of the strong personalities and commitments of her family and their Boston circle. Her two year journal, edited, annotated, and introduced by Marlene Deahl Merrill, is both an account of adolescence and a historically significant document about the popular culture, family life and reform issues of the Victorian era.
