The Dancing Girls is a mesmerizing novel that delves into the lives of a group of young women living in the bustling city of New York in the early 20th century.

Overall, The Dancing Girls is a poignant and captivating read that explores the timeless themes of friendship, independence, and the pursuit of happiness. Ferber's rich storytelling and compelling characters make this novel a must-read for anyone who enjoys historical fiction with a strong female perspective.

Book Description:
The Dancing Girls is just one of the 4 excellent short stories in this recording. All written by the master, Edna Ferber for magazines between 1910 and 1919 they naturally contain her unique mix of real people, sadness, joy and always humor. The lead Story, The Dancing Girls, is my favorite for the way she paints a picture of mid America small town society and how good people somehow (and sometimes) can find their way to each other. Other stories in this collection are Old Lady Mandel; Long Distance; and One Hundred Percent
