Here’s the set-up for Ruth Harris’ Modern Women, just 99 Cents on Kindle:
If you love quality fiction about the lives of believable people, you will love Ruth Harris’s million-copy New York Times bestseller, MODERN WOMEN (20th Century Encore, Book #1).
Beginning with the assassination of John F. Kennedy and ending as the 20th Century moves toward its close, MODERN WOMEN is about the problems faced and progress made by the women—and men—who lived and often thrived during this challenging and tumultuous era.
Lincky Desmond: With beauty, brains and money, she married Mr. Right—only to risk it all for Mr. Wrong.
Elly McGrath: She was loyal and idealistic but when faced with the ultimate betrayal, would she be able to stand up for herself?
Jane Gresh: Bawdy, outrageous and determined not to be ignored, she managed to shock the entire country.
Owen Casals: Handsome, successful, magnetic. He would marry one, betray another and make one of them very, very rich.
Author’s note: The sexual revolution transformed the lives of modern women and I write about this subject with candor, irreverence and humor, the way women talk about sex when they think no one’s listening. Please do not buy Modern Women if easily offended. I want readers to love my books, not be upset by them.
