Women of Property

(1947)
A novel by

 
 
From poor beginnings, from a house brutalized by a boorish father, from complete social ostracism, Frieda slowly and steadily fought her way to wealth and position. Money was all. In the beginning Freida's desire is an understandable thing, even a sympathetic one. Gradually, however, it grows to be an overpowering thing, conquering even the one genuine love she ever admitted. There is a subtlety in the development of this character - a delicate revelation of a character that was, in its own way, symptomatic of the fiercely acquisitive moral climate of half a century ago. Money. It was all. And in the end it was nothing.
