A Boston Harbor Islands Adventure

Adventure with us today along with Stephanie Schorow and the Friends of the Boston Islands as they share with us the process of writing this historical treat. 

In 1891, four intrepid women from Lowell sailed to a remote island in Boston Harbor for a 17-day escape from New England's prim and proper society.
