I read a book about 20 years ago. A woman in NJ with billionaire holdings decides to make the world a better place. She starts an education incentive program for gifted students, starts a space program with ships that do sub-orbital hops, many other projects as well. Could someone tell me if they remember this book and its title? Thank you.

Sounds like Michael F. Flynn's Firestar, first of a series, Kath (http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/f/michael-f-flynn/firestar.htm).

The only bit I'm not sure of is the NJ location...

That was the easiest one I've seen on these boards yet.
