For the women’s heart

For the women's heart
A while ago I came across a TV show called Lipstick jungle, based on a book by Candace Bushnell . The program was about three succesful women who lived in New York.
As it happens very often nowadays, the show was cut short and I got all curious to know how the story developed at the end and what would happen with these three characters. So, I got the book.
Whithin its 368 pages, Bushnell’s novel manages to describe not only the fancy life of Wendy, Nico and Victory, but also the author presents in a very lively way the constant worries and concerns of her characters, while struggling to keep a balance between their succesful careers and their personal lives.
In the end, within talks about fashion shows, fancy dresses, work conflicts and exotic travels, Bushnell shows a very deep side of what they are like (in many cases) today women’s lifes who are ready to go the extra mile in order to get to the top, and have poweful possitions at work, and at the same time how hard it’s for them to keep a social and a family life. It also shows how they are constantly questioning themselves, because they want to feel sure that every step that they’re taking is the right one.
