A Woman of our Times by Rosie Thomas. From Library Journal. Hard Cover (jacket missing)
Thirty-year-old entrepreneur Harriet Peacock decides to jettison both a failed marriage and a successful clothing store to go it on her own. She markets a clever game that becomes an international best-seller, and her fame leads to romantic involvements with a succession of eligible men, including a film star whose daughter claims her as a substitute mother. Set in present-day England, the novel rises above its hackneyed "having it all" theme thanks to sensitive characterizations. Although Thomas gets off to a slow start and provides too many descriptions of elegant clothing and food, she is skillful at building suspense. In its best moments, the book's dialog crackles. Another winner by the author of the popular Bad Girls, Good Women (LJ 4/1/89). Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/90. Literary Guild main selection.
