KIRKUS REVIEW

At an even higher than usual level of subjective, emotional tension, is this new story by Kathleen Coyle -- of women -- and for women -- in her sensitized manner. The scene in France, the home of a gyncologist, Madame Masson, whose son, Martin, has disappeared, and whose daughter, Marianne, raped by some Germans, is now pregnant. It is Marianne's story. Daily she becomes more difficult, finally attempting to bring herself to leave the country as the wife of the middle-aged painter, a next-door neighbor. She cannot go through with it and returns to her mother. Slight, tenuous, but handled with her usual skill and . Limited in appeal.
