A million-copy NYT bestseller! Originally published by St. Martin's Press in hard cover and paperback editions.

Three dynamic, modern women—and the men in their lives. The right men. The wrong men. The maybe men.

Jane Gresh: She's bawdy, talented and determined not to be ignored, but is the unexpected price of her delicious revenge on the man who cheated on her too high?

Lincky Desmond: Smart, beautiful and hard working, she takes a gamble others won’t and, in the process, inspires women everywhere. She marries Mr. Right—but will she risk it all for Mr. Wrong?

Elly McGrath: She is loyal and dedicated, a loving wife and devoted mother, but when confronted with the ultimate betrayal, what will she do to stand up for herself and her children?

Owen Casals: He is handsome, successful, magnetic—and he knows it. He is hungry, horny and ambitious—but will the dark side of success be his undoing?

They are spirited, resilient adventurers in a new universe of untried freedoms and untested ideals. Together they burst out of the past and open doors into an exhilarating—and challenging—future.

“Bestsellers like Decades, Husbands And Lovers and Love And Money have established Ruth Harris as one of the frankest, most stylish, and most compelling voices in contemporary fiction.”

"Sharply and stylishly written. Without sermonizing, Harris manages to write with intellect, insight and humor about the good, bad and ugly aspects of being a woman during the '60s and '70s." —Chicago Sun-Times

"Fiction at its best. Savvily mixes rosy fantasy with truth about women's lives. MODERN WOMEN follows the ripening of three women from the rule-busting sixties to the money-mad eighties. Open this novel and prepare to be happy." —New Woman magazine

"Excellent! A thoroughly delightful tale of what it was like to be young, ambitious and in love during an exciting period of history." --Los Angeles Times

"Author Ruth Harris' rapier wit spices up a coming-of-age-in-the-sexist-'60s story. Funny, sad, vivid, and more than raunchy enough to satisfy the most ribald appetites. Harris seeks to enliven and entertain, and she does it in spades." --The Cleveland Plain-Dealer

"Ruth Harris has written a superb 'rags to riches' story. Harris knows how to create characters that are alive and familiar. These three women, Lincky, Jane and Elly, are like old friends, women we've all known. Their experiences, hopes and fears are universal and, yet, like most modern women they, too, wonder if they will find the right man and or how to get rid of the wrong one. Each in their own way finds success at the top and a successful relationship. You'll love MODERN WOMEN." —West Coast Review of Books
