Just not my type of story with many political details. Those interested in politics, this would likely be a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Girl I Left Behind 13 Jan. 2013
By Ida Marie Pera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one person's version of how it was for women in the "60s. Not all of us felt that way. I bought it for a required reading for an AAUW book study group. It did shed some light on how some folks felt about women's roles.
5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFULLY EVOCATIVE OF AN AGE THAT'S LONG GONE BUT STILL REVERBERATES IN THE US OF A 26 Nov. 2012
By H. C. Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
IF YOU CAME OF AGE IN THE 1960S YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK --- JUDITH NIES WRITES FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A YOUNG WOMAN BUT DOES NOT LIMIT HERSELF TO THE FEMENIST REVOLUTION -- YOU HAD THE 40S, THE 50S, AND THE 60S -- ALL VERY DIFFERENT THEN THE 70S AND ALL THAT CAME AFTER WHICH FOR US IS JUST A BLUR OF MATTTERIALISM AND THE RICH GETING RICHER, THE POOR GETTING MORE NUMEROUS AND THE MIDDLE CLASS HOLDING ON BY A THREAD -- WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT THE 1960S WOULD BECOME A GOLDEN AGE?

READ IT -- YOU'LL LIKE IT!
