But You Are Young

Kelsie Wright is a symbol of family loyalty. Generous, amiable, and sympathetic, Kelsie turns over her hard-earned salary as a manicurist to support her family. . . . Her life is further complicated by the fact that she is domestic by nature and longs to be married and have four children. How can she, when her family weigh like millstones round her neck? Can she let them down?. . .

Josephine Lawrence is an excellent reporter. She has a good ear for what people say, and a lively sympathy and concern with human problems. . . .

This is a study of an economic problem, well observed, and done with more humor than bitterness.

--Saturday Review of Literature, 6 January 1940
