Carey Arundel, Irish and aspirant to theatrical acclaim, marries Paul Saffron, egoist supreme, who sees himself as the world’s greatest producer. Their marriage is a succession of concessions to Paul’s ego—and at its end, it is Paul who makes the break, going his own way in creating German films. And Carey retires from the stage and marries a conservative older man with a problem son, who gradually becomes Carey’s central concern. The war cuts—or seems to cut—the final chord to Paul, and from his years in concentration camp, his ultimate release, stories filter out of collaboration with the enemy, of rejection by the very studios that had sought him earlier. He comes back into Carey’s life—wrecks her marriage to Austin—and, in trying to help him gain a foothold again, she agrees to go back to the screen, with him as technical director.—Kirkus Review.
