Dawn Shamp. On Account of Conspicuous Women. New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2008.

Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda may have tasted the pleasures of New York City, but Bertie, Guerine, Doodle, and Ina know how to make Roxboro hop. In On Account of Conspicuous Women, these characters shake up 1920s Person County with their opinions, their friendship, and their imperfect attempts to build meaningful lives in a small southern town inching into the modern world.
