Scarfolk Council: Romance Novels (1970s)

Every so often I post something from Scarfolk Council, a blog about a town in North West England that did not progress beyond 1979. Yesterday was Valentine's Day and Scarfolk Council enlightened us on novels that pandered to women's romantic fantasies during the 1970s.

Same Job Less Pay (1970) tells the story of a woman who falls in love

she's so relieved she doesn't have to carry around all that heavy money that
she bakes some pretty little cakes and falls pregnant.
