"This might seem like a fluff book but it is actually really good. The tone is light - women meeting together at the park weekly - but it addresses all sorts of topis of its time; women's liberation, civil rights, early cancer cases. . . One of my favorite scenes is when all the families gather around to watch the astronauts walk on the moon for the first time."
