Story set in 1950’s. Story is about a very intelligent woman trying to compete with men. Society is not accepting of her. She is unique and is an example of being persistent and not giving up. Makes one think!!

Bought this as a Christmas gift. A bit disappointed that the jacket was torn on arrival. Also, the target sticker left residue on the jacket. Too bad they’re not placed on the back, or able to be peeled cleaner.

I have only gotten through the first few pages because I bought it for after the holidays but it read very fast and grabbed my interest. I watched the series on Apple TV and that's why I wanted to read the book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this masterpiece novel. Only the last page disappointed a little as the missing pieces came together a little too quickly.

Took this on a trip over the summer. I enjoyed it so much I recommended it to another lady in the tour and she bought it. We both finished and left our copies with people who loved it too. When I got home recommended to a couple of ladies at the gym who raved as well. Highly recommend.

I really enjoyed this book and was able to truly feel the sadness of the characters’ lives. There was a point that I felt frustrated with the main character, but the author was so consistent with her portrayal of Elizabeth that it made me wonder if the character had some type of developmental disability. This opinion is not at all based on the character’s intelligence or abilities. Overall, it was an easy and entertaining read. You can definitely hear the author’s voice on religion and feminism in the story which didn’t bother me, so I would recommend this book.

Book was a melodramatic snooze-fest. The main character was frustrating and unrelateable, and the story just dragged on and on…

This was entertaining and a pretty easy read, I read through it quickly and liked the ending. But not sure it’s worth the hype. I found the main character sort of unlikeable and unrelatable, very “I’m not like other girls” and robotic. The author clearly has an axe to grind against religion and men that I found distracting and over the top. I can tell she wants you to feel very “female empowerment” reading this but it didn’t do that for me. Outside of that though the story itself was pretty good.

I loved the book. The main character is quirky, but she has the tenacity to stick up for herself and her values. She demonstrated the difficulties women faced in their working careers not all that long ago.

I enjoyed the start of the book but about half way through I found the main character annoying and the storyline dragged on way longer than necessary. I couldn’t want to finish it .
