Let's welcome Mahima Martel to Pure Jonel & see what she has to tell us!

~*~  Women’s Liberation of Love  ~*~

“I don’t want to be married; I want a man.” Joey Heatherton

That was a very provocative and progressive statement for a twenty-one-year-old woman in 1965. It was still a time when men were asking a girl’s father for his permission to marry and even to date his daughter. It was still a time when men were chosen for young women whether then liked him or not. It was still a time when many young women had no control of their futures. For Joey Heatherton to make such a bold statement in 1965, well, it was like Miley Cyrus swinging on a wrecking ball.

In the early 1960’s as women were entering the work force and going to college in greater numbers, they became truer to themselves, their goals and aspirations and saw a bigger world on the horizon, not just a man’s kitchen. It would be understandable as women entered the Man’s world, they would meet more engaging men than the one’s daddy would choose for their daughters.

This was the beginning of the women’s liberation and the freedom to love the man they chose and as many men they chose. As women found their liberation in love, it spawned the sexual revolution later in the 1960’s and knocked the door down for women generations to come.

Today, many take for granted as we shop around for the perfect man. We take for granted that we can walk away from love that no longer serve and respect us. Sometimes, we take for granted the man we love, because the love around us seems so abundant.

Has women’s liberation to love gone too far that we easily walk away because we can so freely? Have we become fickle an easily bored, instead of making love work. And when it becomes hard, do we give up for something easy? Has the liberation to love helped or hindered our current relationships?

About the Author:

Mahima Martel - My premierre focus in writing is love within drama, or dramatic love. I am fascinated by the human condition and what drives people to do what they do. Mostly, I have found it is love, or lack of love that motivates people, whether it is to inspire to greatness, or to the depth of depravity. “Saying Goobye, What the World Doesn’t Know,” is based on a true story I uncovered hidden deep within the tabloids of the early 1960’s. I could definately see how the love of these two characters could inspire each other to great heights...and it did so.

About Saying Goodbye:

Contemporary Romance
Published: 9/24/2013

No matter how strong the relationship, or powerful the attraction at some time we all must say goodbye.

In 1964 the winds of change blows across the Atlantic from England to America and sparks a cultural and social revolution. Traditional values of the past are replaced with more modern attitudes caused by the hottest tunes and the latest dance craze.

Vivacious Hollywood starlet Frankie Robinson has no romantic expectations when she meets the dark and introspective Alex Rowley, guitarist for one of the hottest British bands—The Dark Knights. During their first dance, they step into each other's rhythm, as though partners in another life.

For an eager young couple, neither Frankie nor Alex anticipates the scandal their public relationship will cause—reputations must be protected and images need to be maintained. As Frankie and Alex dream of a life together, agents and managers worry of the monies lost and the dangers to their perspective clients. Frankie and Alex are to be kept apart no matter what tragic cost.
Behind the closed curtains of celebrity life, Frank and Alex find a way to keep their private love alive despite all obstacles. 

And now, enter the tourwide giveaway!
