IT WONT BE FLOWERS by Judith Kelly

She can write this newcomer -- and her ""society"" background rings true. A story of Boston (a guess) -- of a marriage that is supremely happy in mutual adjustment, but that stands on the verge of disaster because the husband, whom the girl adores, cannot give her a sense of security in a tottering world. The psychological relations of the girl and the two men who mean everything to her are skilfully and adroitly handled the atmosphere successfully conveyed. A story for those who like upper class settings -- but want psychological problems rather than standardized plot. Doubt whether this book goes far, but the author should be watched -- and encouraged by a thoughtful handling of her first novel. Pick a few customers interested in new writers.
