Novel, A Man's World, Kate Merchant




Who said it's a man's world?

Lillian Hawthorn did all the things here parents told her to do.  She went to finishing school.  She married the most eligible man in New York City. But she was not happy.

One night she take took her courage and made a snap decision that would make her realize why she was not happy. And why she was down playing by her parents and society rules.

In 1964 it might be a man's world, but as Lillian soon grows to understand, you don't have to play by those rules.



This story is about love and betrayal. It is touching and empowering at the same time. It is about a young woman who is fighting for her independence and building her life in a man’s world of 60’s. ... The Man’s World will take you on an unforgettable journey. I highly recommend it.

Loved this book.
This is a great book. Sadly it shows how hard it was fir a female to get help frim an abusive husband. Back in the 60'S. I loved following Lillian's growth from abus3d wife to a woman taking control of her life. Her struggles and growth are encouraging...
