MORNING GLORY

A disappointing career-romance emphasizes love rather than work and lowers its sights to aim at the broad target of unsettled girls who aspire to marriage alone as the fulfillment of happiness. Flighty mineteen-year-old Gloria lives with her serious older sister, Janet, whose admonitions about moping and moaning get Gloria to take the first step towards being a more sensible person. She leaves her job as a clerk at a food produce company, then changes a second time to be a receptionist at an ad agency where she falls in love with Russ, one of the young executives. The chance to become Russ's secretary brings its emotional complications, but the two give it a chance to work out during the months they have in which to decide about marriage. Not as aspiring as Marjory Hall's other novels of the same ilk.
