Autobiography about one of Kentucky's most well known madams and her "house of ill repute". Pauline, as she is
known, was a shrewd, no-nonsense businesswoman for her day and recognized early on that she could turn a nice profit from the world's oldest profession. She encouraged her "girls" to invest their money wisely and often provided counsel encouraging them to get out of the business early and settle down with a husband and family. Despite her "notorious" lifestyle, Miss Pauline was also a product of her times who felt that a woman's place was in the home. ( )

First words
Forward:

What happens when a young and respectable woman--a Sunday-school teacher struggling to support two small sons--suddenly thumbs her nose at convention and embarks on a career as the madam of a whorehouse in her own home town?
Main text:
It's been nearly forty years, but I remember Armistice Day of 1933--or, to be more accurate, the night of that patriotic holiday--like it was only yesterday. After all, how often is a whorehouse opened with an old-fashioned, neighborly housewarming?
