Description

In 1965 Chicago, thirteen-year-old Dani Marek declares she's in love, and you best believe it. This is no crush, and for six blissful years she fills her hope chest with linens, dinnerware, and dreams of an idyllic future with John. When he is killed in action in Viet Nam, Dani's world shatters. She launches a one-woman vendetta against the men she seeks out in Rush Street's singles bars. Her goal: break as many hearts as she can. Dani's ill-conceived vengeance leads her to a loveless marriage that ends in tragedy. At twenty-four, she's left a widow with a baby, a small fortune, and a ghost-make that two. Set in the turbulent Sixties and Seventies, Just One Look explores one woman's tumultuous journey through grief, denial, and letting go.

Review quote

Diane Donovan Midwest Review-Dani's social and political transformations are particularly captivating as she changes her perspective time and again. Easley is adept at capturing the ruin and revolution of Dani's times and heart, contrasting external with internal changes and influences as she traces the logic that underlies both her actions and heartbreak. Set against the backdrop of already-turbulent times, Just One Look's story of a girl who evolves into a young woman seeking a different path makes for an engrossing story of loss, revenge, redemption, shame, and recovery that many women will readily relate to, in different ways. Its astute examination of the processes of love, hate, manipulation, and women's identities apart from men will leave readers satisfied and reflective, with a definitive conclusion tracing how the characters grow and change.
