Review by: Melody S. Lark on June 27, 2014 :
This is an older book written during the Reagan era. The author's biased opinion slants the book, however, it was interesting to read. The story follows two young people seeking to make it in the big city. The female lead is leaving the family farm to pursue her own success. The male lead, it appears, is alone in the world and seeking his own success in the big city. I was given the book to read and review and found it an interesting read. While the author feels Reaganonmics is to blame, the book more clearly shows the difference between having a family to rely on and being all alone in the world.
