KIRKUS REVIEW

Angela, who has been writing poetry during her first year in college but is temporarily non-productive, gets a summer job on Madison Avenue with a firm which represents the little kingdom of Sidonia, anxious to increase American good will. The visit of its King and Crown Price Paul serves toward that end; there are many public functions; and then Prince Paul, who finds the formal life a lonely one, asks her if he may come and stay in a home--hers--for a few days. The visit is a huge success and the hospitality is repaid when Angela and all her family, even the devoted cook Anna, are asked to the Sidonian ball. Through all of this Angela learns to handle people and problems, more than her own, and her romantic feelings toward her brother's friend are for the first time reciprocated... The author, an ""expert"" in this field, does a realistic p.r. job for p.r. in spite of the rather dressy circumstances with which the story itself is engaged, although Angela's poetry does less well for the muse. A Dodd Head Career Book but certainly not all work and no play.
