i started reading this in the brandywine library and couldn't stop.
what a great old-fashioned storyteller hilton was!
Hilton is a great story teller, which is why so many of his books have been made into movies. This, however, is not one of his best novels.

This wonderful novel was in a box of books from my Grandmother's estate. I picked it up on a whim. The characters were really fun to live with and some of the ideas of ambition vs contentment spoke to me a great deal.
On the day that World War II ends in Europe, Mayor George Boswell

Such a sweet story, though it sort of rambled. There was no sweeping storyline or grand view, though the theme of life's purpose against a backdrop of war seemed to sort of tie the different character's lives together.
