Editorial Reviews

Review

DECADES:
"The songs we sang, the clothes we wore, the way we made love. Will have three generations of American women reliving their love lives and recognizing ruefully and with wry affection just what changes have overtaken them." --Publisher's Weekly
"Ruth Harris has re-created both the style and substance of three decades of American life--from the bobby socks and innocence of the Forties, to the crinolines and caution of the Fifties, to the bra-less T-shirts and alienation of the Sixties." --Book-of-the-Month Club

HUSBANDS AND LOVERS:
"A contemporary tale of passion and commitment. Harris is an insightful writer and her empathy for her women, especially the ugly duckling who makes herself into a swan adds a satisfying obbligato of reality." -- Cosmopolitan
"Harris relates the games of love and war in a fast-forward, high octane style.  Deserves a large audience." --New Woman magazine

LOVE AND MONEY:
"Richly plotted and racing to a shocking climax, this glittering novel is first-class entertainment." --NY Times 
"Fast-paced, superior fiction. With a crisply precise and descriptive narrative style and an unerring ear for dialogue, Harris has written a terrifically satisfying 'good read.'" --Fort Lauderdale News Sun-Sentinel

MODERN WOMEN:
"Sharply and stylishly written. Harris treads a fine line between popular fiction and more substantive women's literature and examines the meaning of sexuality, love, success and personal happiness."  --Chicago Sun-Times
"Fiction at its best!"  --New Woman magazine

THE LAST ROMANTICS:
"Delightful, de-lovely and de-vine!" --JRG News
"I love it, I love it! Fantastic, immensely readable." --Cosmopolitan
"Gloriously romantic" --Kirkus

I believe that I would have appreciated the books as one book at the time. I made the error of reading the series. As was truly bored, it was not an enjoyment it was a task. The books appear to be the same history with different names, locations and so on. Redundancy follows these books. It was way too long of a read. My recommendation is to read other books in between the series. This is a new problem for me since I enjoyed reading series

It took me a while to start this series. I don't like romance books very much but picked up this set when it was offered for free. Oh my! Every one of the 5 books in the series is excellent ... stories of women and of the times they lived in. I enjoyed every one of the books, but "The Last Romantics" was my favorite of the 5. This series marches through decades and gives insight into the headlines and the way of life during each decade. Very enjoyable.

So glad I bought the boxed set after reading the first book in the decades series. All of the books are superbly written and you immediately find yourself drawn to and identifying with one or more of the characters. The historical periods are clearly defined without dragging down the readers enjoyment. One of the best I've read in a long while. Looking forward to delving into some of her humor novels. Enjoy!

I thought the series of books were great. I'm a fan of the author so I'm bias but I loved every story. Well written, suspenseful and full of sex- what couldn't you love? I mainly love the historial and cultural aspect of the books in regard to women and women's rights. It's really quite amazing (speaking as a person born in the 80s and raised in the 90s) the roles of women in society from the 1900-1970s and the almost overnight shift in women behavior. I loved the portrayal of strong, independent women and the men who loved them. Keep on putting them out Mrs. Harris and Ill keep buying!

Fabulous rerun of the 1960s through 1980s and the progress of women in work and careers, Uplifting, inspiring, and a good historic review of the headlines and trends of the times. This book is an emotional trip as well as psychological. The stories are human, the issues real, the psychology of choices and their effects on our futures is addressed. The book is realistic and suspenseful. I could hardly put it down because I wanted to see what would happen to these characters next. The books were not connected in character and plot but any one of them was as good as the others. Fabulous!!!!

This series of books is a great telling of the stories of women and their men in the twentieth century. The writer drew me into the characters and I really enjoyed the books.
