About this Item

Cloth-backed publisher's boards, in original dust-jacket; 2 small chips to lower panel, otherwise a fine copy. First edition of this novel. "The build-up is a success story.

The initiative, drive and overwhelming ambition to carve a place of dignity and importance for the family comes from the female side. . . ."
