KIRKUS REVIEW

A competent writer is John Weld, and a versatile one. This is a new channel, a modern story of marriage and medicine. Mark is a poor man's son, ambitious, persistent, and his interest in medicine comes about through a young nurse, Anne. And then, through medical school contacts, he meets the ""right people"" and marries Alberta, rich, prominent, dissolute. A child makes matters no better, but Mark dodges divorce, until Alberts's negligence results in the child's death. Eventually he goes back to Anne. Satisfactory, but not much more. Midwest setting.
