Oh, oh, Ceclle you can do good atmosphere writing, fiction and non-fiction, (witness Seven Grass Huts etc.); your own regular novel, Preacher on Horseback, was good Americans. But this rage-to-riches Cinderella story is straight strap-hangers' delight, rental library drip, with practically the whole gamut of tricks trotted out, slightly tarnished, with a happy ending, complete with frozen orchids. From waitress in a cheap joint to a penthouse on Sutton Place, with a young doctor who wasn't good enough for her, a fortune she didn't know was her, a strange will, and a hero who is in her had books through most of the story -- what more could you ask? Rentals -- but yes!
