GIVE ME THE STARS

Socially acceptable war novel, which attunes the tale to the times, as young Leslie, spending a summer of college vacation at work in a Connecticut war plant, learns to doubt the reliability of her early judgments. Her father's illness; the return of the boy to whom she is engaged, and his installation as inspector in the plant where she works; her enmity, and curiosity, thoughts centered on hardpushing, silent Nick; her friendships with the girls who are her fellow workers; her growing awareness of the selfishness and rigidity of her fiance's mother -- all these factors combine to wake her to the knowledge of the choice that is right for her. An amplified, well-turned woman's story.
