This book takes place in New York City just before the United States enters WWII. Amanda Keeler Evans is a scheming, ambitious young woman who seduces the wealthy publisher, Julian Evans from his first wife. Amanda's life is turned upside down when a childhood friend from Ohio arrives in New York. All of the characters in this book are social climbers who are looking to move up in New York society. This book was first published in 1942, but apparently there has been renewed interest in the books written by Dawn Powell. I enjoyed this book very much.
