A bestselling sensation when it was first published by Viking in 1978, A Woman of Independent Means has delighted millions of readers and was the inspiration for the television miniseries starring Sally Field.

At the turn of the century, a time when women had few choices, Bess Steed Garner inherits a legacynot only of wealth but of determination and desire, making her truly a woman of independent means. From the early 1900s through the 1960s, we accompany Bess as she endures life's trials and triumphs with unfailing courage and indomitable spirit: the sacrifices love sometimes requires of the heart, the flaws and rewards of marriage, the often-tested bond between mother and child, and the will to defy a society that demands conformity. Now, with this beautiful trade paperback edition, Penguin will introduce a new generation of readers to this richly woven story. . .and to Bess Steed Garner, a woman for all ages.

From the Inside Flap:

ng of age early in the  century had few choices... unless she had independent  means. Bess Steed Garner inherits a legacy -- of  wealth, determination, and desire. She loves one  man with all her heart only to discover the price  of such devotion. She struggles with the flaws of  marriage and its irresistible rewards. She sets  out to conquer high society and forces oil-rich  Dallas to its knees. But her own daughter may break  her heart... and the man she chooses may rob her  of the one thing she prizes the most -- her  manipulating, delightful, bossy, and believable  independence. For Bess is a woman of independent means.

From the Back Cover:

"A portrait of a woman with all her frailties, strengths, failures and victories combining to prove that living a life is an accomplishment." -- The Christina Science Monitor.

"Nothing about it is ordinary" -- Los Angeles Times.

"Wonderfully Appealing."-- Publishers Weekly
