In a compelling approach structured as theme and variations, Sicherman offers insightful profiles of a number of accomplished women born in America's Gilded Age who lost—and found—themselves in books, and worked out a new life purpose around them. She argues that with Little Women's Jo March often serving as a youthful model of independence, girls and young women created communities of learning, imagination, and emotional connection around literary activities in ways that helped them imagine, and later attain, public identities. Sicherman discusses Edith & Alice Hamilton, Jane Addams, Rose Cohen, Ida B. Wells, and others.
