KIRKUS REVIEW

.....and the RX for rent in the partial marital recall of Laurie Joyce, as at forty, she looks back on the warm satisfactions- and one troubled time- in her marriage to Martin, a teacher. From the stance of the security that the years have brought, she goes back to the vulnerable episode of Virginia Warren, the parent of a problem pupil who had been more than a problem to Laurie when Martin had had an affair with her, which, even after its dissolution, he had refused to discuss. And as Virginia Warren comes back into their lives, and revives- for Laurie- an old threat, she finds that her faith in her marriage-and Martin- is rewarded... By the author of Annie Jordan, this is a smoothly textured treatment of a timeless theme.
