Before anyone cared, before Gloria Steinem and #metoo, ambitious women - a rare breed in the workplace of the 1950s and 60s - were forced to jump hurdles men didn't face. Nina Silver and Betty Cooper, two of these trailblazers, had little in common and met only once, yet a mysterious death tethered their paths for decades. All Things in Time is the story of these two feisty women in the post-WWII years: their careers, and their personal lives, calculated and otherwise.
Written with rare and wise perspective by the 90+-year-old Sue Buyer, a Vassar College and Columbia Journalism School graduate, the book builds on first-hand observations and experiences in the newsroom of a metropolitan, large-circulation paper. After decades as a professional writer, Buyer has written her first novella.
With both mystery and romance, All Things in Time will appeal not only to those who enjoy a page-turner, but readers who want a glimpse of nostalgia or are curious about the role of women in the workplace of yesteryear. The novella will also appeal to anyone looking to curl up in a nice chair with a good read on a rainy day.
