KIRKUS REVIEW

Lorna Newcomb and Scott Mendell come to the Cape Cod village of Belleport to escape their pasts,- she, a broken marriage, and he, memories of the war. They meet through their work in a new bookshop, find happiness there, and Scott falls in love with Lorna. Then it comes to light that Scott's war buddy, Downey, is Lorna's ex-husband whom she divorced so that he could marry the French girl who was the mother of his child- only to have that marriage break through his unhappiness. Scott unselfishly brings Lorna and Downey together again to repair their marriage -- and there's the traditional happy ending. Familiar characters from earlier books- and a setting she had made her own, for a contrived but familiarly comfortable novel for conservatives. (Despite the double divorce!) Family Bookshelf.
