“This novel begins with Dawn West landing a job with a popular glossy magazine called "Charm" Dawn's grandiose expectations are shattered when she learns that the job will only be temp, and that her office is located in the sub-basement of an older building in a dodgy area of New York.
Her assignment is to locate past winners of the magazine's presigious "Ten Girls To Watch". Dawn will interview and compile the necesary information of these women for an upcoming gala 5oth anniversay celebration.
Each past winner has unique talents that have contributed to success. We read how how Dawn grows and matures through life's lessons, many a direct result of this temp job.
I personally took longer than usual to finish this book. It is written with intense passion. It took me back to a time in my life where I experienced and related to many of the things that Dawn had to face.
This is a dynamite debut from an up and coming author. Charity Shumway has captured a place in time many women will relate to and I highly recommend this engaging read! The character development is outstanding, and book clubs will find so much to discuss.
I can envision another novel that features Dawn and the main cast of characters! In any event, be on the lookout for this author! ”
