  • a good book

    I received a free electronic ARC of this novel from Netgalley, Sarah McCraw Crow, and Harlequin-MIRA. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this novel of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. Sarah McCraw Crow writes a tight, accurate portrayal of the time and place and attitudes women were required to try to workaround. (Believe it or not, things are much better, now. It was, truly, just this bad back in the day, though.) Our story begins on the Sunday after Thanksgiving in 1970. The setting is Clarendon College, an all-male school in Westfield, New Hampshire. The Desmarais family consists of Oliver, a tenured professor and clarinet player in the schools' jazz ensemble, daughter Rebecca, 14 and bright, and wife Virginia, just one step away from receiving her Ph.D. when she married Oliver, still on hold on that, teaching the odd class in art history and totally unprepared to step into single parenthood on the death of Oliver on page one. A strong woman, not afraid to show her feelings but able to work around them, we witness the growth of both Virginia and Rebecca over the nest year, the structured changes necessary to become independent women in a world in social rebellion. A good read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
