A contest between husband and wife, each a distinct individuality, over the family way of life, over their friends, their children, their homes, his profession and her pleasure. She finds a refuge in a garden all her own, and she finds fame through the diary for which the garden supplies the inspiration. The novel is in the Margaret Culkin Banning class, typical woman's magazine material of the better type. Romantic flavor, clever dialogue, some drama, and a great deal of the intimate kind of discussion that delights the feminine soul. Light fiction for a woman audience.
