85-year-old Addie Baum tells the story of her early life in the beginning of the 20th Century. Unwilling to accept the rigid societal, cultural, and familial restrictions of her youth, Addie became a young woman who fought to be true to herself.  Along the way, she developed relationships, including mentors and friends, who helped sustain her as she grew into an independent and educated woman she knew she deserved to be.
