“She had not expected to find romance on this assignment–but then, almost everything at the Indian Service Hospital had come as a surprise,” says the back cover.
With a waist cinched like that, can’t we assume her brain is probably in a perpetual state of circulatory distress easily confused for surprise? She seems to be putting a good (if slightly manic) face on it though. We hope her relationship with that Kachina is all she dreamed it would be.
“Then there was Chad and the promise of love and fame he offered Julie, sharing his roaming, exciting life as a folksinger.”
Folksinger and inveterate womanizer maybe? Yes, glamor waits in the wings. Some day she’ll surely join in on stage — when he barks for a replacement for his broken string.
“But could the quiet, competent nurse hope to win her man when Tina whirled, glittering, out of the spotlight and into his arms?”
Ice skating rivalry? Sounds like someone’s in for the “Tonya Harding” treatment.
“Fascinating Clyde McLaren, a strong candidate for the moon shot, was brilliant and quite friendly. Or did he want more than friendship?”
Sounds like that uniform of hers is primed for a lift-off.
This is can’t be as bad as the cover, can it? Is that possible?
