MODERN WOMEN:  Million Copy NYTimes bestseller, #1 on Amazon’s prestigious Movers and Shakers List.
Park Avenue Series, Book #4, by “brilliant” novelist Ruth Harris:  “Fiction at its Best.”

The lives and times of three young women—Lincky, the smart one, Elly, the idealistic one, Jane, the outrageous one. Meet them—and the men in their lives. The right men. The wrong men. The maybe men.

“Author Ruth Harris's rapier wit spices up a coming-of-age story. A superb 'rags to riches' novel.  You'll love MODERN WOMEN.”--West Coast Review of Books

“Ruth Harris's breezy prose style, peppery dialogue and irreverent observations make MODERN WOMEN fun to read.”--Dallas News

"A sure thing. I greatly enjoyed MODERN WOMEN and, actually, I couldn't put it down." --The Washington Times

Ruth Harris is “Brilliant.....trenchant, chic and ultra-sophisticated, a writer who has all the intellect of Mary McCarthy, all the insight of Joan Didion.” --Fort Worth Star-Telegram
