A women's book that is more substantial than some -- and a likely renter. The emptiness of driving for a career -- and money -- is emphasized in the story of Tina, sharp, successful, and sure that material achievement is worthy every sacrifice, physical and emotional. To that end, her marriage to David, whom she married rather lovelessly, is bypassed whenever necessary for her advancement in the advertising business. Partly out of attraction, partly as a boost to her career, she has an affair with Andrew, one of the firm's best accounts. Finally, after close to fifteen years of pressure work, the demands of Andrew -- and less so of David -- Tina has a breakdown in Vermont, and through a refugee doctor, comes back renovated and regenerated and with a new goal, -- to become a real wife to David and to devote her time to helping others in the Cooperative movement.
