MOONFLOWER

Career and romance blossom jointly in the story of Julie Hudson, whose life is disrupted when her family, bankrupt, must move to a farm. At college, Julie is tossed on a stormy sea of emotions: she is crazy about Ned the handsome but stand-offish basketball player; though she is interested in art she feels no solid purpose to life. But once on the farm, the jolt away from former surroundings brings the realization that work and study are as important as play. Julie returns to college knowing about farming, more interested in painting, and with Ned, who now notices her, she plans a promotion career with a farm implement company that will take them both to India. By the author of Penny Rose, this is on the right track, but simply dimensioned for simple tastes.
