LINE OF DEPARTURE

A story of young marriage during the separation of the war years, which establishes a direct, contemporary contact and carries recognizable conviction. Here are Janey and Pat Dimick,- Pat as he is shipped overseas and pushes on into Germany, somewhat afraid and very insecure as a green officer; Janey, as she adjusts from boredom to independence, as she takes a job, gets involved with Gray and his guilt over non-participation in the war, his decisive self-concern. Out of a rather negative desire, Janey sleeps with Gray, hating the duality the relationship imposes, breaks it off- to hear that Pat is reported a prisoner. With his homecoming she realizes the stress of change, of silence, their marriage will have to withstand...An intelligent, incisive interpretation of common circumstances and conflicts-sympathetically handled.
