KIRKUS REVIEW

A Sunday School finale for a book the bulk of which is below stairs standard, with some pretty hot passages centering around an unconsumated marriage. The story is concerned with e the struggle of a young man to bring his delicate, beautiful wife out of her escapist dream of inadequacy in the face of any situation she dislikes. She is finally healed through giving of herself in the service of a Mrs. Meeker, a poor creature with arthritic fingers, and she wins enough courage to break the escape pattern. The husband meantime, with the help of the local librarian who introduces him to the world of books, is helped out of his slough of self pity, and in the end all seems headed for a successful marriage. A psychological novel for the ABC's.
