New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company. Good in Good dj. (c.1929). Unstated edition. Hardcover.

"Young and self-confident, Rosanne is transplanted from her native New York to New England. She has married into the Porter family, and with good-natured curiosity she examines her new relatives -- sound New England stock from north of Boston, whose reliability and well-being are explained by the family shoe factory, founded by 'Gran' Porter in the early days. But their stiff-necked ways are not her ways; and after the first shattering ecstasy of her love for Alec has subsided, she decides to do something about it. Too late the Porter family realize what is going to happen; helplessly, they stand and watch." Striking (but uncredited) dust jacket design. . (Inventory #: 13243)
