Carol Milford, educated, sophisticated, and energetic, has ambitious plans for her life. Her studies have prepared her to join an enlightened, progressive society. But after she becomes Carol Kennicott, the wife of a small town physician, she quickly learns that she is to be nothing more than a gracious wife. Frustrated and torn between the challenge of social change and the comfort of personal security, she begins to understand the cost of conformity--and rebellion.

After listening to half of this novel, I was amazed that anyone would think it is a great book. Technically very well written, Lewis is nevertheless completely bogged down in his paranoid obsession against what he sees as the evils of provincialism. But which is really evil, provincialism or snobbery? I will take provincialism over snobbery any day. Demonizing small town people because of the things that enabled them to survive as courageous pioneers--namely God, family, thrift, and a distaste for urban extravagance and snobbery--is reprehensible, not a a laudable quality of great literature! This is not great literature--it's just a leftist wrongheaded diatribe against small-town America!
