From the jacket
With a portfolio of drawings under her arm and a red feather in her hat, Marel Gordon came to the city, determined to establish herself as an illustrator of children's books. Hard work landed her a job with an exciting literary agency. The job was not all glamour, but to Marel success seemed very close. Then, when a young writer, Chris Mallory, came to play an increasingly large part in her life, she found that she wanted more than a career. Despite warnings that two people could not successfully manage both their jobs and a home, Marel and Chris were married. They were young and they planned carefully. They shared the dish washing as well as each other's successes, but there was more to share and to give up than they had counted on.
