In the choices two different women make, we discover the lives of all women . . . 

“[Marge] Piercy has proved herself a sensitive champion of women's issues.”—The Charlotte Observer

Small Changes is the explosive novel of women struggling to make their places in a man's world. Set against the early days of the feminist movement, it tells of two women and the choices they must face.

Intelligent, sensual Miriam Berg trades her doctorate for a marriage and security, only to find herself hungry for a life of her own—but terrified of losing her husband.

Shy, frightened Beth ran away from the very life Miriam seeks, ran away to a new world of different ideas, and a different kind of love—the love of another woman. . . .
