This was a story of a young woman's coming of age in the turbulent 50s and 60s. She grows up in New York and moves to the racially divided South for college. There she sees firsthand the first steps of the civil rights movement, the beginning of women's liberation and the sexual revolution. Angered by the inequalities she decides to study law, much to the chagrin of her mother who wants to see her married in the suburbs. I liked this book a lot because the main character, Tana, is an intelligent, independent young woman determined to make a difference in a challenging world.

From the warn-torn forties to the present day. Full Circle captures a nation swept up in bewildering change. Here Danielle Steel illuminates the lives of men and women seeking solutions to problems people had never before faced...seeking answers to questions that had never before been asked. Here is the battle for Civil Rights... the history of the generation that paid the price for Vietnam. Here are today's men and women determined to find personal significance in a world where having everything has taken on a new meaning... in lives that must come full circle.
Jean Roberts, almost instantly a widow, promised herself that her infant daughter,Tana would have everything. Jean's boss, Arthur Durning, seemed able to provide for that. Unhappy with her personal life, he offered Jean and her child every luxury, every advantage-except marriage. Convinced that her security and Tana's happiness depended on Arthur's wealth and position, Jean clung to him. Mother and daughter had found security, but at a price. Then, in one shocking night, Tana's innocence would end and her life would change forever. Betrayed by the very values meant to protect her, Tana found herself suddenly a stranger to her mother nad to her own past.

For Tana, the years to come would be filled with unforgettable people: Sharon Blake, the beautiful black girl who knew the meaning of pride, integrity-and sacrifice; Miriam, Sharon's powerful mother, would point the way to Tana's future; Hary Winslow, who shared with Tana's friendship more sustaining than any love;and Russ Carver, the man to whom Tana would dare entrust her future.
