This book seemed really dated - my copy had a copyright of 1992 but it seemed to be written in the 70's. A woman from the midwest marries a guy from New York who wants a woman he can count on to keep house, perform "wifely" duties, etc. And not get her pretty little head involved in his business. Do these type of guys still exist?? It was a mildly entertaining read but the last few pages were strange - almost tacked on or something.
