Meet Nancy Blake, an inspiring role model for career oriented “older girls” of the 1940s.
Nancy seems to have it all: brains, beauty, a sweetheart in the Naval Academy, admittance to college, and now a great job offer as copywriter in an advertising agency. Life really seems to be coming together perfectly! And then she is accused of selling confidential information to a rival agency…
She and her friends work together to clear her name, but they don’t let that get in the way of doing their patriotic duty when Japan attacks Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
Published in 1942, this novel gives wonderful insight on the values and spirit of the American people just as they enter into World War II.
