I just finished reading a book, "Landfall" that was written in 1953. I was amazed at what a strong business woman the main character was for that time. I thought that Candace Brunshell's books were so popular because they portrayed Manhattan women in a way they had never been before, but here, 50 years earlier is a portrayal, that rivals the strong characters in Brunshell's novels and whose storyline seems to be the basis for the plot of the second season of Burnshell's TV adaptation of Lipstick Jungle.
