This is the diary of Flora E. Parsons, a young woman in Liberty, NY in 1874. At the beginning of the diary, Flora is nineteen years old and finishing her final year of school. She graduates in April. In May, she commences her work as a school teacher and moves out to find boarding near her school. She turns twenty in July. This diary comes at a pivotal time in Flora's life as she transitions from a student living at home to a teacher living on her own. Her diary entries, while each only a few lines, give insight into her worries, hopes, and thoughts. During the one year diary, she copes with many troubles beyond her transitions, including the serious illnesses of both of her parents. This diary provides an enlightening look into the mind of a young nineteenth century woman. Readers today will find that she wasn't much different than themselves.
22 DEcember 1899 Time is marching forward, carrying us over the threshold and pitching us willy nilly, into a new century. The prospect of growing up in that unexplored territory is so thrilling that I fancy, if I close my eyes tight, I can almost see the process taking place! A day slips away like sand in a sand glass and then another day dawns and so we are caught up in this inevitable passage towards 1900. I bought a journal and have begun to transfer all my scribblings of the last few days into it. I shall call it 'Twentieth Century Girl', for that is what I intend to be!

It's hard being the normal one in such a crazy family. Bluebell and her family are about to hear life-changing news. There is weeping and storming off. There are orphaned kittens and internet disasters. Guitar-playing runaway boys and little sisters with secrets. But there is also laughter and of course, there is love - and that's what being a family is all about.
