Slanted Windows is the story of a young farm woman, Laura, caught up in her life as a city office worker several years after the end of World War II. It is also the story of her finding herself through friendship with a more worldly, outgoing friend, Patricia. In this poetic narrative, a quiet young woman learns to put muscle into a workforce that is much like herself: innocent, unconscious, disenfranchised. She begins to learn the beauty of nature and culture, social justice and the arts, and to comprehend how these can create an inclusive textile in which to live a life.
