One Glorious Ambition: The Compassionate Crusade of Dorothea Dix

by

Born to an unavailable mother and an abusive father, Dorothea Dix longs simply to protect and care for her younger brothers, Charles and Joseph. But at just fourteen, she is separated from them and sent to live with relatives to be raised properly. Lonely and uncertain, Dorothea finds that she can't accept the social expectations imposed on her gender. She wants to accomplish something more than finding a suitable mate.
