Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This charming vignette follows the early days of the marriage of Raney, an inno cent, Southern Baptist, and Charles, who is considerably more liberal and so phisticated than Raney. The two must make many accommodations to one an other and regularly consult a marriage counselor. PW found that the author's ``ear for idiom is exact, the two central characters perceptibly developed and the other members of the small cast are giv en dimension and personality.'' (May)
