KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of Night Over Fitchs' Pond has written straight fiction this time, a good story, but neither so unusual in theme nor original in handling as the earlier book. A boy, scarcely out of college, marries the girl next door to save his father's ""honor"" -- and his mother's tears, and find that he accomplishes neither object, and comes close to wrecking his own life and the girl's. A good story in the telling, but in retrospect unconvincing (not that that matters). Cora Jarrett can write, and she spins a readable tale.
