Tackling an issue that few writers take on, Payne, author of several books on poverty, business, and charity, speaks to those who have fallen in love with someone from a different socioeconomic class. She clearly explains how the hidden rules of class shape the ways that people conduct their lives, families, working situations, personal finance, and approaches to religion and charity. The role of sex and food in poverty and the nurture of children in the wealthy classes are also explored. A particularly helpful chapter supplies specific tips for making transitions from one class to the other and how to help one's spouse make the shift. Useful for those in "mixed" marriages but also for anyone wanting to understand what motivates people outside of one's own social group, this is recommended for all libraries.
