A story of "the group" of Vassar College grads of the class of 1933, this book offers an interesting commentary of the social and sexual mores of the era in American history between the Depression and the beginning of WWII. I'm sure this book was considered to be quite risque in its day (Copyright 1954!). It took me about 100 pages to really become absorbed in the story, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. An interesting read! I understand that the movie is good, also.
An excellent study of the impact societal norms and mores had on women in the 1930s, told through a series of vignettes over a 7 year period concerning a group of 7 female friends. Incredibly enjoyable and thought-provoking. The images and questions it left me with will stay with me for a long time. Highly recommend to fans of historic lit and those with an interest in women's studies.
