Again for softer lighter feminine moments a love story which totes up to practically nothing but pleasant company, nicely turned dialogue, romantic miscalculations and misunderstandings, all of which is very refreshing as present day relief. (Singing Beach and The Days Between were published by Harper -- note shift.) The story concerns Jasmin, 24, who falls in love with Tony, sees him again at Lake Winnebag after an interval, and finds her mother, Laura, a divorcee, violently opposed for no other reason than that Tony's mother was responsible for Laura's divorce. Then Roger turns up to soothe troubled waters -- and on the side to win back again Laura whom he had always loved. Jasmin believes, for a moment, that Tony is her half-brother, and runs off, but that is disentangled, and Roger reconciles the young people and straightens out his own marriage. Ingratiating tale.
