A sequel to last year's Immortal Helen, this continues- on a sumptuous scale- the story of Eve Hastings, now the wife of Howard Cheney, the mother of four boys, and still going her own impulsive, unimpeded way. Finding that marriage to Howard- lazy at best- is staling, Eve is attracted to Tom Rivers who is a match for her restless vitality. But Howard, after setting a price for his riddance, conveniently dies, and shortly thereafter Eve's stepsister suicides in order to free her husband for Eve. Eve, temporarily through with all men, is finally assured by her father that the fault is not hers and she recalls Rivers... The decorative details here, and the clinches (on the buxom side for conservatives) gives this its romantic reader interest- for women only; rentals largely.
