SMALL WORLD

Sara Ingalls is a lovely, warm-hearted war correspondent. Web Harmon is dark, intense, handsome, a war correspondent too. What more natural than that they should fall passionately in love on palm-fringed Saipan during World War II? But both are strong-minded, independent, proud; and the inevitable misunderstanding arises which keeps them apart for years as they hurry about the globe covering the Peace Treaty, Korea, the Berlin Airlift, Mossadegh, Egypt, etc. Their paths cross many times, basically their love never falters, though Sara makes a short-lived marriage and though Web seeks forgetfulness in the arms of a ravishing but respectable lady reporter. Of course all ends satisfactorily, as was predictable from the start. It is a rich, ripe romance with the whole world for a backdrop--a world of hard-drinking, profane, restless correspondents and the women who work and love with them. Fast-moving, colorful, with a basically serious story in a slick package, it is written by a practising newspaperman and should be popular.
