KIRKUS REVIEW

An unglamorous ""Kitty Foyle"", this story of Sylvia Singer's dreams of marriage and something different, something better than she has known in the Bronx (New York City), security of mind and body. She ""hunts"" other man, but it is Paul to whom she comes back, with whom she argues, to whom she succumbs, and with whom she finally breaks. She takes a job at domestic work to provide some income for her mother and brother; she evaluates the world in her own terms. And then comes Pearl Harbor, her ""telegram from heaven"", which helps focus her ambitions, show her that the job to be done is bigger than her problems. She smooths things out with Paul, now in the Army, and sets out for defense factory work. Honest, revealing, and a sober Kober feel to the style.
