Availability: Ready to download

If you thought the ladies from the first book, Wanton: Stories of Wonderfully Shameless Women, were shameless, then you’ll love these stories about strong women. Cheeky. Flagrant and unashamed. Each woman in this collection of stories experiences life in her own, eccentric way. Some are forced to strike out on her own, like Evangeline from Red Hair. Others rebel by keeping If you thought the ladies from the first book, Wanton: Stories of Wonderfully Shameless Women, were shameless, then you’ll love these stories about strong women. Cheeky. Flagrant and unashamed. Each woman in this collection of stories experiences life in her own, eccentric way. Some are forced to strike out on her own, like Evangeline from Red Hair. Others rebel by keeping their past as a trophy, as in First Love. The heroine in Her First Ball is fiercely determined to have an evening to remember, no matter who fills her dance card. Her internal monologue reminds us of the desires and unintended cruelty of adolescence. Edna Ferber is a writer who knows women, and excels at the snowball effect: how one small decision can change a person’s life. In Sun Dried, the heroine wants to wash her hair, then let it dry in the sun. The chain of events which unfold are captivating and exquisitely told. Written in the style of the diary of a teenaged girl (complete with misspellings), Bab: a Sub Deb is funny, touching and somewhat surreal story of a young woman who wishes to be taken seriously, while herself not taking anything too seriously. Willa Cather’s tale, The Bohemian Girl, is city mouse vs country mouse fable: one person’s paradise is another person’s hell. Cather holds up a microscope to the differences between the two lifestyles, and the young woman who must ultimately choose which scenario is right for her. Each of these women are united in their femininity, their toughness, their unpredictable nature and their utterly perfect wanton behavior. Each heroine is truly one tough cookie.
