AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Domestic estrangement through a child's death. A husband's insistence that his wife leave their young child at home while they take a six week trip abroad causes their eventual separation when the child dies of croup during their absence. Illness, a new child and their love reunite the pair at last despite pride and a cold mother-in-law. Interesting sketch of the husband's nature by the wife. (PB)
