In her latest book, The Boston Girl, with a farmhouse building from the 1800's located ninety miles north of Boston. A two story, white clapboard, and a sign, “The Rockport Lodge,” looking like a dozen other bed and breakfasts in town but unique in its clientele and history.
"I must have driven past the place a hundred times; without giving it a thought, but pulling the car over when I saw a friend walk out the front door." "She told me that Rockport Lodge was not like other inns. Only female guests were permitted, a policy that started in 1906, when it opened to give inexpensive—and in the early days chaperoned—holidays for city girls of modest means."The philosophy behind the inn was to provide a bit of recreation and leisure for girls who would never have been able to afford it, if not for their wealthy patrons.
Thus, begins the adventure and a story that is unforgettable, The Boston Girl.
