Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this expansive romantic novel British author Mitchell skillfully evokes the life and times of an appealing heroine, Jane Whitcomb, daughter of the upper class. An ambulance driver in WW I, Jane emerges from the conflict shell-shocked, mourning the death of her fiance, John Patterson. Psychiatry enables her to recover and to begin a search for Patterson's relatives, whom she finds in the economically depressed Northeast English town of Felston. Her decision to help Felston emerge from crushing poverty is the turning point in her life. Becoming romantically involved with an American millionaire, owner of a London daily, she writes moving articles about Felston for his paper, lectures to raise money for the community and in the course of saving Felston saves herself. While deftly portraying a large cast of characters, Mitchell depicts two distinct milieus, the glamorous world of the privileged and the roiling, impoverished world of the underclass. The book closes in 1926, year of the general strike in England, the beginning of the disintegration of the barriers between classes, the final dissolution of the psychological barriers that have held Jane captive. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Jane Whitcomb, the woman of the title, still has nightmares and other effects of shellshock seven years after World War I. She had driven an ambulance on the Western Front, where her fiance was killed. With her psychiatrist's help and that of an understanding father and aunt, Jane begins to regain her stability. A legacy from her aunt enables her to track her fiance's family to Felston. There, Jane is caught up in the struggles of that poverty-stricken area and becomes involved with Jay Bower, an American tycoon. Her work for Felston and involvement with Jay take Jane to Paris, New York, and Hollywood. The people and places are generally believable, though Jane's rapid transition from a recluse with frequent nightmares to a dream-free woman immersed in London society strains credulity. However, much of the charm of this novel is that it not only reflects the period, it is in the style of novels written then. Recommended for large historical fiction collections or where there is a particular interest in war-related novels.-- Ellen Kaye Stoppel, Drake Univ. Law Lib., Des Moines
