KIRKUS REVIEW

The by no means attractive amatory pursuits of Zoe Robinson as she loses her first husband, replaces him with much older Mr. Robinson, satisfies her restlessness as the benefactress-mistress of an eighteen year old local boy, Arthur. Finding it a little difficult to keep both her men aligned, Zoe gets in way over her head as Arthur is convicted of her husband's murder, and Zoe makes her amends through suicide... A deliberate, sometimes derisive portrait of a ludicrously loving woman and the unintentional impetus to crime she created.
