KIRKUS REVIEW

Not much more than a novelette, as Miss Parrott skirts the beaten light-love tracks, successfully avoiding the pitfalls of the happy ending, and sustaining well that sense of a throb in the throat. It is the story of two Russians and a multi-millionairess told episodically, spaced by the years, and tying together at the close. Two Russians, wealthy aristocrats, forfeit everything and emigrate to America, where each finds a solution of sorts in marriage. -- one for money, the other for love, until death brings an end. One senses something of haste in the manner, but at that it is above average. Good rental item.
