From the front and back flaps…
“Money. What other goal is there?...”
That was the question that dominated the life of Frieda Schlempke, daughter of immigrant parents, born in a small town in the Middle West just before the turn of the century.
From poor beginnings, from a house brutalized by a boorish father, from cpmplete social ostracism, Frieda slowly and steadily fought her way to wealth and position.
Money was all. Without it there was nothing. At first there were nickels and dimes hoarded from the tiny salary Frieda earned as a clerk in the dry goods store. The, years later, there were thousands of dollars each month from the exclusive dressmaking establishment that Frieda built almost from nothing.
In the beginning Frieda’s desire is an understandable thing, even a sympathetic one. Gradually, however, it grows to be an overpowering thing, conquering even the one genuine love she ever admitted.
There is a subtlety in the development of this character – a delicate revelation of a character that was, in its own way, symptomatic of the fiercely acquisitive moral climatic of half a century ago.
Money. It was all. And in the end it was nothing.
