|About the Book|
Bless you, Constance. I had done an Internet search a couple of years ago and found nothing. I read this many, many times in the 60s, poring over it and trying to read between the lines - imagine a book about a girl being married and trying to have a child without any sex in it! And the emphasis on knitting - thought that was so strange but now realise it is an authentic detail.I got this book as a discard from the Boston Public Library. A family friend was a retired policeman who worked as a guard there. Discarded books were supposed to be destroyed, but he saved a very few for me because everyone knew that I could never get enough of reading. I rememeber him with love - tall, skinny, impossibly old it seems to me - Mr. OConnell.
