KIRKUS REVIEW

Good circulating library bet, this fast moving, dramatic story of an Italian girl whose life is watched over by a drunken newspaperman. He nicknames her Kelly at her christening, plays patron and guardian, abets her tragic little romance with her family's enemy, worries over her futile marriage, protects her from her gangster brother, and finally gives his life for the man she loves. The man is better drawn than the girl -- colorful Times Square background.
