The three novels written by Mildred Walker have born evidence of versatility and exceptional talent. Dr. Norton's Wife approached best sellerdom. This has almost as good a chance (though it has elements that may detract from the sale which was attracted by the medical bias of the last). Again a story of a woman's adjustment to life in the story of the youngest daughter of a proud Michigan family who flouts conventions by getting a newspaper job and by marrying a brewer's son. He abandons his profession to run his father's brewery -- and on his death, Sara decides to carry on herself. She takes the hurdles of the war and the hatred of the German tradition; but prohibition closes the brewery and leaves the restaurant as her mainstay. The discovery of cases of beer on the premises brings danger to her -- and her former suitor chances his own career to prove her innocence. Good reading for the feminine market.
