At the end of the story, readers find a character of remarkable strength and empathy. -- Kirkus Reviews
New York City, 1966. Nineteen-year-old Candy Krzyzanowski believes she can have both marriage and a career. But she falls in love and becomes pregnant, only to be devastated when the father, a local football hero, strong-arms her into an illegal abortion. And when the dangerous procedure leads to an emergency hysterectomy, she wakes up barren and abandoned.
Battling through depression knowing that her family's line will end with her, Candy vows to soar beyond society's conventions and pioneer her own future. And as she sets out to achieve her dream to support women, she's determined to overcome abusive professors, tumultuous personal relationships, and the painful guilt that won't let her go.
Will she triumph in a male-dominated world and finally learn to forgive herself?
Against the Glass is an emotion-drenched historical novel. If you enjoy women's literature with inspiring heroines, journeys of self-discovery, and windows into the past, then you'll adore Linda M. Habib's deftly painted tale.
