The novel's overriding theme was to teach the main character, a young woman, valuable lessons about how to live a better life. The author did a great job of conveying these lessons while telling a great story!
I have read several books by Robert Wolff over the years. I found this book very inspiring. Robert Wolff has so much talent and I think this is one of many of his books that makes you feel wonderful after you read it. The lessons learned are always essential.
