A Boston maiden, escaping from the nagging of her stepmother, travels to San Francisco during the early 1900s. There she opens a "typewriting" business while indulging her sense of adventure and curiosity. Fields brings the young lady vividly alive with a sharp, no-nonsense tone that is enchanting. Caroline Fremont Jones (now divested of her feminine first name) enters her new life with a zest and humor that resonate in the narration. Even Fields's odd mispronunciations cannot detract from the élan as Fremont enjoys her city, her times and the people she meets. If those encounters are not always successful, she, in Fields’s ringing tones, perseveres. S.B.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
