[lightly shelfworn, some age-toning and light spotting to edges of text block; jacket is presentable, but appears to have been insect-nibbled all along the bottom edge, and is somewhat faded at the spine]. "A novel of a woman who traded love and security for independence," set in New York City in the 1920s. "Cassandra Blake, red-haired, dynamic, ambitious, descended on New York in the days of a booming stock market and nights of speak-easy life determined to take the place by storm. Steering a precarious path through love affairs, marriage, and her writing career, she carried her independence high, and from an adventurous life built her books. There came a time, inevitably, when Cassandra had to choose between security and success, and, unusual woman that she was, she picked the unusual way." "The Red-Haired Lady" is generally thought to be an autobiographical novel. The author (1887-1981) wrote more than fifty books over the course of her lifetime; her best-known character was the octogenarian "Mrs. Meigs," who was featured in a number of her novels.
