"A story of three generations, beginning in 1840, in a Dutch household in Leyden and ending in 1923. Each generation of the women of the Cornvelt family revolts against the tyranny of its men-folk, gaining in their struggle for freedom not happiness, perhaps, but the less tangible satisfaction of having rebelled" - "The Booklist"
