Violet meandered wistfully through her bedroom. She didn’t have to go. Staying and waiting for a boy to propose would be easier. But she had never taken the easy way out. That’s how she managed to become her high school’s first female valedictorian and win a scholarship to Vassar.
Her father was contemptuous of her ambitions, but she didn’t think much of his oafish views. The world was too exciting a place to be just another nameless housewife.
She slipped on her shoes, straightened the seams in her stockings, and picked up her suitcase. Life was going to amazing!
