    Excellent depiction of life in Boston in the 1870s. M.J. Petttengill weaves a story that contrasts the indigent with the elite, the hopeful with the hopeless, the good with the bad, the right with the wrong, the men with the women. Life was horrific for the poor and outstanding for the rich. Although those extremes exist in today's world they are but a speck of what it was like one hundred fifty years ago.
