A realistic moving novel of two young people—a poet and an office girl—who were madly in love, yet literally could not afford it. For in Gordon and Rosemary's world unmarried lovers are cruelly ostracized, and only money can buy the protection of respectability.
Desperately they sought privacy in deserted country lanes and sordid rooming houses. But in the end they broke through society's taboos to grasp the happiness they sought.
