I have finished the book! I must say, Lucia’s character is strong and independent. Her character goes through the glamour of being a ‘career’ girl in the 1950’s and the promises of a life of uptown luxury. All to come down on her. The story plays into the choice career vs. having a family, a topic that rages on even today.
The book does a good job of describing the sadness involved with her choices. I couldn’t put the book down, and the ending was perfect…but I won’t give it away.
Basically, materials mean nothing, people and love do.
A great read! Please share your comments, I would love to hear your opinions!
