First edition of this novel. “The build-up is a success story. Its account of the triumph of an immigrant family during the early part of the century follows a traditional pattern - with one exception. The initiative, drive and overwhelming ambition to carve a place of dignity and importance for the family comes from the female side. . . .” This novel is a continuation of Williams’ two earlier novels, White Mule and In the money. Wallace, A37.
