“This book created a sensation in Paris. It raises the question whether women can ever be absolutely free —free to work, free to choose, free to love. And, if complete freedom is unattainable, which offers the greater liberty — marriage or ‘free love?’ Withal, this is a poignant and passionately earnest account of the lives of five women who resolve that independence is worth any sacrifice,” (from the dust jacket).
