Review Text

Watch your market here. It's a book which depends for its values on the effectiveness of the handling of a difficult subject, and the subject will throw it out for your conservative customers. The story of a girl luxuriously brought up in the West Indies, who is cast adrift, with no training for building her own life, in England, and who slips, almost inevitably, into the sordid life of a prostitute. Not quite so clear cut as After Leaving Mr. Mackenzie (her best known book here), but realism well above average. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
