KIRKUS REVIEW

Matrimonial potage, in which Ron, a young Obstetrician, marries the spoiled, wealthy, neurotic daughter of his chief. Lydia wants and takes everything; Ron dislikes their social runaround, and after five years discovers that Lydia is becoming a dipsomaniac. He and Jenny, nurse from his home town and the girl he should have married, try to break her of it and fail. But finally she takes a ""cure"" -- comes through, and is all set to try again, on Ron's level, in his own small town home. Usual high finish. Dependable Faith Baldwin.
