From the publisher- "A novel of abstruse passion told in terms of everyday American life, and of the strength of character exerting itself in the face of inner mental struggle. It is quick-moving and Mrs. Jarrett subtly interweaves her strange psychological detail with the absorbing progress of her unusual narrative. She writes definitely of emotions beyond the normal; of elements in life which the reader recognizes with a shudder as being more normal than he, perhaps, cares to admit."
