Philadelphia: Blakiston / Triangle, (c 1932.) dj. Hardcover - The dust jacket describes this as "A Tender Romance of a Girl Who Chose Love Instead of Security" - but it is instead a chronicle of the gradual growth to maturity of a young girl, one of four sisters raised with every privilege on a secluded ranch just south of San Francisco, who falls in love with a married man, and when that romance turns to disaster, abruptly marries a poor man, a mountain guide, and learns what a struggle life can be. Notable for its descriptions of the settings - the coastal hills of the ranch, the small town where she lives in poverty with her two small children, the camp in the Sierras. 343 pp. Attractive dust jacket art.
Condition: Good only in a very good dust jacket. (usual severe toning to the pages, 2 sheets detached but present.)
