Boston Adventure

Boston Adventure
A provocative story of class struggle, privilege, and poverty that put American author Jean Stafford on the map.

Boston Adventure is the haunting story of a girl in flight from her impoverished childhood. Sonia Marburg--growing up in a village outside Boston, deserted by her father, and burdened with an insane mother--dreams that life can hold nothing better than the imagined splendor of Beacon Hill. When she becomes the protégée of a wealthy Bostonian, her dream is achieved, and with it comes the revelation of an empty, decadent society.
