I received this in the mail from elizardbreath of Pendleton, Oregon who was my Secret Santa this year.

Thank you so much for this hard-to-find book. I've read other books written by this author and enjoyed them. I had no idea who my Secret Santa was until I opened the presents.

Although written in the 1980s, the plot of this book takes place in the 1950s and beyond. Two English sisters choose different routes in life. One sister chooses traditional marriage at a young age. The other sister surrenders her virginity at a young age and scorns marriage.

NOTE: This book has been donated to the General Literature VBB organized by bookstogive.

It took me a while to get into this book. At first, I didn't much like it, but I found it interesting to read for the second half of the book. The overall point of the book is that finding a man is not the happily-ever-after that fairy tales lead us to believe. It is not a secret that young Zoe who falls in love and married young has married a selfish man incapable of loving a woman. Zoe's sister Leila encounters selfish man after selfish man. Yet she adapts to this by becoming independent. The two sisters are women of privilege which helps them in their struggles.
