This classic collection of essays touches on women’s place in society and poses the question of how to balance self-preservation and the myriad needs that everyday life brings. What’s especially interesting is how Morrow touches on marriage and relationships, both marital and extramarital, during the time when her husband, famed aviator Charles Lindbergh, had a secret hidden family in addition to the family and children he had with her. The book also discusses how advancements in mechanization have impacted women – and not always for the better. This is especially interesting when you consider that the book was written more than fifty years ago.
This is not a book of fluff, but one to be read carefully, and perhaps more than once.
