    Different generations intersect

    Two women, different generations, very different but yet have much in common. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The characters are complex and well developed. This book is very timely in its view of womens’ issues that are being addressed right now. I highly recommend this book for women of all ages.

    Historical surprises

    The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) of New York City ran a ridership campaign from 1941 - 1976 which featured The Subway Girls. This fictionalized novel focuses on the July 1949 winner while also following the struggles of an advertising creative woman who is presenting a new campaign idea to MTA in 2018. Both women's lives are fascinating in how things were, things are, in relationship to working women in society, but also in how alike choices can be. All of the characters are well-developed and easy to love for their variety of temperaments, even when they aren't lovable you can relate.

    Charming, alluring, and lighthearted!

    The Subway Girls is set in New York City during the late 1940s, as well as present day, and is told from two different perspectives, Charlotte, a young woman who yearns to have a career and be more than just a wife and mother, and Olivia a marketing executive who’s determined to prove she deserves the same recognition and success as her male counterparts. The prose is precise and effortless. The characters are ambitious, independent, creative, and strong. And the plot, alternating between past and present, is a nostalgic, fascinating tale of life, love, deception, betrayal, heartbreak, perseverance, friendship, family, romance, and the world of marketing. The Subway Girls is a well-written, exceptionally researched novel that highlights Susie Orman Schnall’s incredible knowledge into the Miss Subway advertising campaign that graced the inside of NY Subway cars from 1941 to 1976 and reminds us that even though we’ve come so far the work-life balance is still a very real struggle for professional women today.
