Not a novel theme -- woman's place today, career versus marriage. A girl, disillusioned by her father's failure, goes ultra-modern in this matter of woman's rights and wins through to success in a whirl of business, literature, movies et al. Only when her Victorian professor admirer leaves for a two year lecture trip, does she realize that love would fit nicely into a scheme of life. The setting is Vienna, but the handling of the subject is flexible and adaptable. Though the plot is somewhat exaggerated, the analysis of the problem is sound, and the characterization well done. A more seasoned book than its predecessor -- though scarcely a best seller.
