The Blue Stocking gives voice to the silent thinking of a modern woman in a conventional society masked by unconventionalism to forge a path of progress in the world which turns faster than any one of us can grasp. In its spin, are years trapped in the minds of a young woman who was too mature for her crowd but too young to break out for she was not bold to hurt the very culture which gave her the grace to move as much forward as they held her back to be on top. These essay, although written singularly with the selfish perception the thoughts only belonged to this young woman but in fact rings true in most of similar circumstances. However, the love which grows within her may have been the selfish desire to remain independently singular but in fact taught her to expand the love even further with wisdom, understanding, fortitude, knowledge from right to wrong (although only thinking makes it so), and the courage to do right spiritually because an inch within us remain the comfort of the compassion of saving her soul from the destitution of the real meaning of love.
A must read for eye-opening revelations for those still learning to love and yearning for love. You may think you have lost it but this book gives you the conviction, it can never die because nothing good ever does.
