STRAWS IN AMBER

Romance of two people born on the same day and following the same profession: Jewish Morrie and Cockney Sally. They are parted by one thing and another -- the death of Sally's father, Sally's engagement, Morrie's entering the War, Sally's rise to stardom in theatre while Morrie is starting all over again when the War is ended, Sally's marriage, from which she will not free herself, Sally's drinking, from which Morrie tries to save her, Morrie's near-permanent injuries received while defending Sally -- and finally the happy ending. Though this has a manufactured feel, the theatre background is good and the story readable enough.
