"This touching book centers on two people who pursue careers as journalists after World War I. For David Driscoll, the chaos at war's end provides him with the ideal story with which to win his own column. He writes a series of articles on the plight of the Armenians, focusing on a young girl in an orphanage, Josephina Gregorian, who dreams of becoming a writer. When a relative then living in the U.S. reads about her, she emigrates, and a few years later, after much study and hard work, she gets a job at a newspaper at which David works. While Jo's writing shows great promise, David's career suffers. What follows is a sensitive character study of an aging reporter unable to cope with the new style of journalism that was then developing."
