Divided into three sections, Wife, House and Family, the book covers these traditional concerns with chapters on higher education for women, thrift as a philosophy, children's literature, hospitality and keeping up with the Joneses.
A quick and enjoyable read, this book makes even the most devoted career-minded woman take a moment to savor the ways in which to improve one's home, meals and family life. This is one of those books that I pull out and reread over and over again when it is time to get some perspective on what's important in life. A truly wonderful book that while slightly dated--is never out of style!
While women today are constantly reminded we have choices, all too often, if we make a choice to stay at home, we are looked down upon and pitied for stupidity. Why is a different choice socially unacceptable? If my choice is to have the baby, to stay at home with my children, to vote for the better man over the worse woman, to do any of the things liberals think antiquated, misquided, or just plain ignorant, get over it. My choice is just as valid as any one else's. McGinley may have written this book back in the sixties, but, WOW! it is still pertinent today.
I know my decision 16 years ago was the right one for me and my family. McGinley helps me see I don't have to defend it anymore.
