In Edes Powell Gilbert's memoir, Alone Together, readers are introduced to a lively girl living through the war years and a life of academia. In this legacy for her children, the author looks at the choices made, what informed those choices, and the people who influenced her decisions. She credits her family history with her independent and open minded nature, and for creating the foundation upon which she has built a satisfying and productive life. From the Edes men who printed pro-democracy flyers during the American Revolution to her parents, Greenwich Village writers in the roaring and inspiring 1920s, to classmates and teachers, all are given a place of prominence and importance. This collection of intimate stories and a narrative on women's rights illuminates an era when the country was changing and how one girl changed with it.
