KIRKUS REVIEW

This time religious and racial prejudice as thematic talking point in another popular treatment of average people and common problems. Cecilia, whose mother has defied her father to marry a Catholic, falls in love with Hyman Silverstein, meets muted family resistance, and marries him not wholly realizing the prejudice she will face. Put on the defensive by constant references, allusions, -- the constraints of restricted neighborhoods and conversations, -- the knowledge that Hyman is fighting prejudice in the Army as well as in civilian life, -- the fact that their children will have the stigmatic of Silverstein -- Cecilia is ready to accept her grandmother's two hundred thousand dollar bribe to change their name until Hyman, unwilling to give up what to him has been a lifelong fight, refuses -- and she recognizes the integrity of his stand. Again also a family novel, a novel of current wartime situations, and once again with the very recognizable attitudes and stock phrases of everyday people. For women -- and well done.
