Wayward Widow

Midwood F226, 1962

A shocking story about a young widow and what she did to fill her emptiness

From the back:

Every day we see these attractive young women—one of them might be sitting on a bar stool in St. Louis, another walking into a theatre in Chicago, another strolling through Central Park in New York, and perhaps another boarding a cable car in San Francisco. Each is alone, each has one thing in common with the others—all are young widows, an intriguing breed of American womanhood

What do they do—these women who suddenly find themselves deprived of sexual fulfillment after a need for it has been kindled within them? Some remarry, some lose themselves in a career, some fill their needs with other women’s husbands. Author Loren Beauchamp tells the story of Mrs. Kay Brighton, a widow at twenty-two. Kay chose the downward path, going from one immoral act to another until she hit bottom—a broken woman at twenty-three.
