THE FAITHFUL WIFE

More in the vein of The Wild Orchid -- but I think a better book than that or any of her books in modern setting. A marriage problem story, delicately handled, in which a wife discovers that her husband,still caring deeply for her, has been having an affair with a younger woman who is carrying his child. The wife insists on divorce, to give the child a father, and tries to find happiness herself with the prospect of marriage with an old suitor. But circumstances intervene -- and the couple are reunited. It sounds trite -- it isn't, in the handling. And the study of the psychology of a woman on the verge of doubting her husband is skillfully done.
