April 2, Susie Orman Schnall, The Subway Girls
The novel is based on the Miss Subways contest that ran in New York City 1941-1976. The storyline parallels two strong women, generations apart, who are up against the same struggle to find balance between love, happiness and ambition: Charlotte, a 1949 Miss Subways contestant and Olivia, a 2018 ad account manager who through her job becomes interested in the contest. Each tells her story in her own voice until ultimately they connect in a most surprising way.
