KIRKUS REVIEW

The effects on a small Illinois college town of a civil liberties trial in 1919 in which a socially prominent woman is involved. A loveless marriage has turned her toward economic problems, and she joins the socialist party -- and is arrested in a ""red"" raid, along with some workers. The trial reveals the realities of the situation -- and with the verdict, she leaves town, with hope of happiness ahead. Life stories of all involved -- good background of a mid-western town -- but too long to sustain interest.
