Maddie Samuels is woman of – and ahead of – her time. She knows she doesn't belong in the kitchen, and she refuses to become trapped in a secretarial pool. In mid-sixties New York City, she's not only determined to succeed in a man's world, but to prove her work is as good – or better – than any man's.
With “free love” redefining relationships with head-spinning rapidity, Maddie learns how to push the accepted boundaries of established old-boy networks while refusing to accept the all-too-pervasive harassment by men in power. And yet as a woman in love, she discovers that beliefs and actions are often very different things – especially when it comes to a man like the seductive and charismatic Rob MacLeod.
Set in the era of Mad Men, I Love You Today is passionate, sexy, liberating and deeply moving. With a story as relevant today as it was then, this is a novel that readers will take to their hearts and their souls.
“Love, sex, lies, and advertising in the era of Mad Men. Compelling and provocative.”
– James Wiatt, former Chairman and CEO, William Morris Agency
“I enjoyed I Love You Today immensely. It was like a romp through the Mad Men era told from a woman’s point of view. For me, it was a trip down Memory Lane (aka Madison Avenue in the late 1960s). I not only liked it, I lived it.”
– Pamela Fiori, author and former editor-in-chief, Town & Country
“Marcia Gloster paints an intimate portrait of life in 1960s Manhattan, as one young woman strives to make her way professionally and personally in the challenging art design world. An accomplished artist herself, the author brings her own insight and in-depth experiences to the story and delivers a narrative that highlights both career struggles and characters searching for true connection in the midst of a social and sexual revolution. Readers looking for a peek into the magazine publishing and advertising world of that era will be intrigued!”
– Marilyn Brant, New York Times bestselling author
“A well-researched glimpse into a woman’s turbulent struggle in a male-dominated career during the late 1960s. It pulled me right in, from the wrenching love story that could never have a happy ending, to the ultimate strength shown by the main character. An overall compelling journey.”
– Andrea Hurst, author of Always with You
