Making Ends Meet - Barbara Howar

making ends meet by Barbara Howar
Starts out 9 years old at the beach lazing around watching men in their uniforms.
Myrtle Beach, SC and the men who flew the planes.  Clara her mother had parties for all the troops til they left with their pins on her clothes.
She has to stay home to take care of Teddy her younger brother. During the war as chapters go back in time and to the present...
She heads to NYC and launches into the fashion industry. Love all the background detailed talk of the trade.
Sending the children to boarding school is out of the question for her.  We learn of all her male relationships over the years.
Lydia tries to bring together her life...like fashion parts of this book.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
