"The Typewritter Girl" (Ashley's Review)

"The Typewriter Girl" by Alison Atlee is another book that connects with all your emotions at once. With this book you are introduced to a young woman who just wants to show that she can break the mold for woman. She will do anything just to be respected and in a high position that it is comical and inspirational all at once. She is a strong willed woman who won't take no for an answer and if she has to lie to get ahead..than so be it.


The summary is as follows....
   "When Betsey disembarks from the London train in the seaside resort of Idensea, all she owns is a small valise and a canary in a cage. After attempting to forge a letter of reference she knew would be denied her, Betsey has been fired from the typing pool of her previous employer. Her vigorous protest left one man wounded, another jilted, and her character permanently besmirched. Now, without money or a reference for her promised job, the future looks even bleaker than the debacle behind her. But her life is about to change...because a young Welshman on the railroad quay, waiting for another woman, is the one man willing to believe in her. Mr. Jones is inept in matters of love, but a genius at things mechanical. In Idensea, he has constructed a glittering pier that astounds the wealthy tourists. And Betsey, he recognizes the ideal tour manager for the Idensea Pier & Pleasure Building Company. After a lifetime of guarding her secrets and breaking the rules, Betsey becomes a force to be reckoned with. Now she faces a challenge of another sort: not only to outrun her sins, but also to surrender to the reckless tides of love..."

Betsey has had to work for everything her whole life and she doesn't like having things handed to her for free or having something she hasn't earned yet. All she wants to do is prove that woman can do more than just type reports and be treated like crap by the men who they work for. Mr. Jones seems different from all the other men that Betsey has ever had to deal with, but can she keep him on a professional relationship only. She wonders why she has feelings for the one man that believes that she can be the powerful, hardcore woman, that she knows she is on the inside. There tension is go great that as a reader, you find yourself rooting for them to end up together and wanting to slap them for being stupid all at the same time. This book is guaranteed to pull at your heartstrings and hopefully will get the message across: That no matter who or what you are, as long as you believe in yourself anything is possible.

I believe in all of our readers and you can do anything you set your mind to...you just gotta believe in yourself and never let anyone tell you any different.

Happy Saint Patricks Day!!!!
