  "A town like Alice" by bboulo (see profile) 04/11/16

I'm amazed I never read this timeless book before. It's a classic and shock it's not on more must read book list. It's amazing story of the strength of women surviving against all odds. And love found in the most dismal situations. Wonderful Historical fiction.
