So after reading Forever Amber, I was lucky enough to find this book at my local Goodwill for a quarter. I quickly feel in love. The main character Shirleen is selfish, foolish, and scared. Yet on so many levels, I could relate to those characteristics, and thus Winsor herself. I don't think that Shirleen was by any means a very lovable character. She made numerous mistakes, but who can't relate to that? She came to a level in her life when she had everything she could possibly want, but somehow ...more

Interesting. A novel written in 1950, set during WWII, about a woman who is past ready for women's lib and yet is in possession of so much self-doubt and low self-esteem that she is incredibly miserable. Again, interesting.
This was a fascinating character study of an extremely narcissistic woman forging an independent life for herself (sans husband away at war) during the early 1940’s. Because of Shireen’s preoccupation with herself, she can only maintain relationships for as long as they support her needs. What kept the story interesting was her ability to become self-aware and recognize her destructive behavior. But her brief insights never led to constructive change. Her back and forth pattern of selfishness ...more

A neurotic, psychopathic Scarlett O'Hara in the 1940s. Interesting but personally unrelateable.
