KIRKUS REVIEW

Better integrated, better resolved than his first, Night Duty, this is a second doctor's story by a young English medic, a nice combine of romantic and medical incident. A small village in Wales is the scene for a paratyphoid epidemic, recognized as such by worn Doctor Evans, but discounted by the health inspector and by Seton, who owns the local bun factory and refuses to discharge an employee who is the typhoid carrier. Ann, Evans' daughter, collaborates with Routh Graham, a young doctor, to identify the germ. Ann is in love with Routh's brother, who is killed at Dunkirk, and after his death, Routh gains in decisiveness and independence -- and one feels he will eventually make Ann forget the loss of Michael. For rentals largely -- nicely done.
