Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lynn is an ambitious young woman who loves her job in the gleaming new Manhattan skyscraper. Soon, Lynn also loves Tom, the young clerk down the hall. They are so in love that if they don’t get married, something improper is bound to happen. But her company has a strict new policy: Any woman who marries will be immediately fired. First published in 1931—the same year the Empire State Building opened its doors—Skyscraper marks the advent of a new kind of romance plot, and Lynn a new kind of heroine. Lynn is facing choices that will determine the course of the rest of her life, but rather than just choose between suitors, Lynn and other working girls like her must decide whether to abandon their careers—or abandon their men. They can’t have both—or can they?

Synopsis:

An exciting career in a skyscraper--daring intrigue--or marriage to a regular joe? What's a girl to do?

About the Author

Even as she turned out fast-paced love stories for popular consumption, popular romance writer Faith Baldwin had a finger on the pulse of the economic and social changes facing women in her time. FAITH BALDWIN (1893-1978), one of the most popular and prolific mid-twentieth-century authors of romance fiction, published 85 books from 1921 to 1977. Lisa Walker, associate professor of English at the University of Southern Maine, is the author of Looking Like What You Are: Sexual Style, Race, and Lesbian Identity.
