I was a little leery about reading this book because I didn't want to read a bunch of love stories, but I felt the story of Francis would be interesting to read. I absolutely love reading stories about women who forged trails for the rest of us.
And the book turned out to be better than I thought it would! The 5 or 6 couples that were fictionalized in the story were really relatable and I enjoyed how the author linked all of the characters together at the end of the book. They weren't just 5 or 6 short stories of these couples with nothing in common but the theme.
If you want to read a great story about Francis and find out how she survived in the male dominated 50's, then read this book! The other couples are a bonus to the real story.
