Meet three modern women—and the men in their lives.
Jane Gresch: Jane Gresch: Her delicious revenge on her lying, cheating, thieving ex makes her rich and famous, but then what?
Lincky Desmond: Smart, beautiful and hard working, she marries Mr. Right—but risks it all for Mr. Oh-so-wrong.
Elly McGrath: Elly McGrath: When her husband dumps her for another, younger woman, she doesn’t get mad. She gets even.
Owen Casals: He is handsome, successful, magnetic—and everyone knows it. So does he.
Spirited, resilient adventurers in a new universe of untried freedoms and untested ideals, they open doors into an exhilarating—and challenging—future.
"Excellent! Thoroughly delightful!" —Los Angeles Times
"Author Ruth Harris' rapier wit spices up a coming-of-age-in-the-sexist-'60s story. Funny, sad, vivid, and more than raunchy enough to satisfy the most ribald appetites. Harris seeks to enliven and entertain, and she does it in spades." —Cleveland Plain-Dealer
"Ruth Harris has written a superb 'rags to riches' story. Harris creates characters that are alive and familiar. These three women, Lincky, Jane and Elly, are like old friends, women we've all known. Their experiences, hopes and fears are universal and, yet, like most modern women they, too, wonder if they will find the right man and or how to get rid of the wrong one. Each in their own way finds success at the top and a successful relationship. You'll love MODERN WOMEN." —West Coast Review of Books
