Originally published in 1960, this novel tells the moving and thought-provoking story of an extraordinary white man married to a unique black woman.

Coming from an ignorant and unambitious farm family, Claude Depler, after several years of unsuccessful job-hunting, finally makes a name and a place for himself as head of a community center in Chicago. Here he meets and marries an outstanding black woman whose name is nationally recognized as an enlightened and vigorous advancer of the American Negro’s interests. The larger part of their married life is spent in Milan, where Claude is now an administrator of a post-war refugee program.

Their soul- searching inner struggles and their quest for peace of mind and heart, intimately involved with the problems of racial discrimination, are sensitively developed by the author.
