KIRKUS REVIEW

Filled with anticipation and overflowing with too much enthusiasm, Rhonda Sterling arrives at McClellan Air Force Base in California for her first assignment as an Air Force nurse. Rhonda, attractive in appearance and flawless in character, lives up to all little girls dreams of what a nurse should be. She becomes involved with different patients in the wards, and carries out her duties with diligence and concern. Dr. David North, tall, dark, serious-falls gaily in love with our proper, ideal nurse, and after a traumatic interruption wrought by the Fates when Rhonda attends flight school, he proposes-- and she accepts. Character study is almost nonexistent, but the story, told mainly through dialogue, moves along quickly. And, in spite of its faults, young girls enchanted by the idea of nursing will undoubtedly enjoy the idealized picture presented here by the author of The Vet is a Girl (1959, 704, J-326) and other career romances.
