A story of the adult life of Marguerite Carter covering 50's to the 2000 covering the main events and changes of those eras. An easy to read book that shows depth of understanding of the times- and also we think, much of Sheila Hancock's own opinions and views. The characters are well drawn and believable. It caused lots of discussion about the changes that have occurred and were they beneficial or not.
