(From the publisher):
Minna wasn't nice, she was wonderful! ...And she had everything!
A Scandalous Reputation...
Fall River looked down its nose on Minna, and the rest of the Harris—imagine a woman supporting her family—and her husband too—by trotting off for week-ends with OTHER MEN!
A Zest For Life...
Minna was always the life of the party; she could make any man feel young and important- that is, all except her husband.
A Heart of Gold...
Minna would do anything for anyone. She could sing and dance like nobody's business, but she never traipsed back from the big city unless her arms were laden with presents to make the stars shine in the eyes of her family.
The Harris' house may have been an old shanty on February Hill, but it was rakish too—and it housed as harum-scarum a family as ever lived. Warm-hearted Minna was head of the household, then cam eVergil her husband, who didn't know how to leave his books or the bottle alone. There was Minna's ma—she still had a wonderful repertoire of shady songs. Of Minna's three daughters there was the precocious one—Amy. And Jenny, who found real love, and last was Dottie, contempuous and cold.
