A woman's problem novel -- the old struggle between a career and the demands of wifehood and parenthood. But this is the story of the years that led up to the problem, rather than the problem itself, years that built into Harriet's personality the need of a career as a focus for living. I liked it -- better than any other book on the subject I can recall. It is sound to the core; the problems are human ones and not artificial; and Harriet, particularly the Harriet before matrimony, is a personality that lives. The publishers have faith in this as a first novel. Imprinted cards available.
