Multi-problemed light novel for conservative tastes, and for renters who prefer a family story of adjustments to glamorous romance. This is the story of a second marriage, as Philip, divorced from Sheila, gay, petulant, beautiful and wilful, seeks companionship and security in marriage with Anne. Anne finds it a tough assignment, both as second wife and stepmother to spoiled five-year-old Mary, particularly when Sheila reappears and disrupts the pattern. Sheila makes a play to get Mary back, but Mary takes things into her own hands and chooses Anne and a home. Goodish.
