KIRKUS REVIEW

A complete case book on Faith Andrews, her success as a national celebrity and the failure of her marriage to Mark Holmes,- this is a consecutive, composite portrait of a woman. Of a somewhat shabby background, Faith becomes the childhood friend of Mark Holmes whose grandfather is the most influential citizen in the town. Sensitive, staid, even a little severe, Mark is always in temperamental contrast to Faith, impulsive, independent, social, liberal. With Faith's inability to have children and Mark's insistence on staying with the business enterprise which Faith considers impossible, Faith goes to New York and the marriage breaks up. There are the many ups and downs of her years there; her eventual success in a public relations outfit; her marriage to a main-chancer in advertising, Faith finally finds that her husband- and her organization- are lined up with isolationist forces, and she leaves both. With the war, she meets Mark again in Paris, and when she finishes her successful crusade for a women's political party, she is finally free for marriage and private retirement with Mark. A novel of a woman, for women, which has more substance and intelligence than most- but which is still largely for rent and high at this price.
