A Woman Of Independent Means Paperback / softback
Part of the Virago Modern Classics series
At the turn of the century, a time when women had few choices, Bess Steed Garner inherits a legacy - not only of wealth but of determination and desire, making her truly a woman of independent means.
From the early 1900s through the 1960s, we accompany Bess as she endures life's trials and triumphs with unfailing courage and indomitable spirit: the sacrifices love sometimes requires of the heart, the flaws and rewards of marriage, the often-tested bond between mother and child, and the will to defy a society that demands conformity.
Told in letters we follow the remarkable life of Bess Steed Garner from her childhood in 1899 to her death in 1977.
