In the early 1950s, when women fought for recognition, young Harriett Bailey Kepler blazed a trail through her studies and the workplace. As the head of the secretarial pool for Dugan and Company, she earned her place, was respected, and gained one promotion after another. She was also an excellent people manager. Unfortunately, her home situation wasn’t as appealing. Harriett dealt with a jealous and callous mother, whose mere presence drained everyone. She also had a husband who stopped communicating while on his military rotation to Italy. Harriett loved him, but was it mutual? Will he ever come back to her? Follow Harriett as she fights to have it all; a happy marriage, career growth, and academic fulfillment in Hill House Divided by S. Lee Fisher.
Hill House Divided by S. Lee Fisher is a captivating novel with many facets. The book revolves around a woman and her battle for survival at work, in her marriage, and with her family while striving for personal achievement. There was a lot to unpack, and I connected with Harriett. She was quite the resilient and determined one. Her ordeal was thought-provoking because I’ve seen many high-flying women who became empty shells. After all, they had to work twice as hard to prove themselves or give up their goals for the family. Hence, I appreciated Roland upholding equity and justice while creating a conducive environment. I did not like Olive and wondered why Tobias endured the spousal abuse. Eddy was a nutcase, the worst of men, and I didn’t know what to think of him. Hill House Divided has a deep, unique plot and storyline that I enjoyed. It ended on a cliffhanger, and I can’t wait to read the next installment.
