Professional training and experience at a University Hospital in Philadelphia as a physical therapist brought Laurie Wentworth skills that were to prove more useful than she could envision as she set out from Madison, Wisconsin to undertake her first job. Treating Tony, an embittered victim of polio, and fighting an epidemic, she finds her devotion to Dr. Carl Swoboda is more than clinical. Laurie is thankful for her training when she finds that Carl returns her affection and she is able to help his young son, a victim of cerebral palsy. A starchy vocational romance gives a picture of the physical therapist's schedule, by the author of Katie and Her Camera and A Palette for Ingrid. Again we want to plead for teen age material on a less superficial level.
