    • A:
    • Lilly Holden crossed the ocean to bring up five children in the New World, building a life where she knew no one, starting from scratch like millions of other immigrants. She had a brilliant mind, was very beautiful, and she could have been a star of the stage or screen. She was also a firebrand, politically, an early feminist and a life-long student of eastern philosophy.
