KIRKUS REVIEW

The perforation of a woman, physically appealing, morally appalling Mary Ingram, who becomes a leading best seller- not without the insistence that she's a wife and mother first. With the chance encounter of an old college rival, psychiatrist Gertrude Hanna, Mary is exposed to a less kindly scrutiny as Gertrude finds her home neglected, her children rejected, her gentle husband, Sam, still under the illusion of her brilliance. Sam's eyes are opened, in short order, by Gertrude, by the suicide attempt of Mary's only friend, by the runaway of their third child, and Mary- heading for Hollywood- leaves her family to Gertrude's ministrations. Feminine fiction which is diverting, discerning.
