Atlee, Alison. The Typewriter Girl
This historical debut novel is about a young woman in turn-of-the century England who finds independence and love when she leaves London and journeys to a seaside resort for employment. Betsey Dobson boards a train from London with nothing other than her battered valise and bruised ego. After trying to make it in a male-dominated world, she is finally able to find herself--and a man whom she can love--in this idyllic setting. Not all goes smoothly but, of course, in the end she is better for it. An enjoyable read!
