Several years ago, the University of Michigan awarded the undergraduate Avery Hopward prise to Mildred Walker for a promising first novel, Fireweed. Now her third is the January choice of the Literary Guild - unusual progress for a young writer. DR. NORTON'S WIFE is a psychological novel, with a medical background - ?? popular at the moment. Against a screen of a medical school with the members of the faculty and their wives, is played out the triangle drama of a ?? member, his wife, who is a hopeless invalid, and her sister, a divorcee, living with them and keeping house in her sister's place. Sue is the focus of the story, and the tragedy of change in her relations with her husband and her ?? the world around her is extremely well done. In the ultimate triumph of a ?? best understanding and relationship, counterbalancing the attraction of health and love ?? sympathy, one feels a wish to believe something that is made almost but not quite ??ineing. Easy reading, with promise of greater development. (Kirkus Reviews)
"Dr. Norton's Wife" was praised for its quiet honesty and artistic integrity when it was first published in 1938. It stands up firmly as a portrait of a marriage subjected to the strain of unexpected invalidism. As a doctor's wife, Sue Norton is no stranger to matters of life and death. But medical shoptalk screens her from the realities of illness until she is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Never clinical, Walker, herself the wife of a doctor, accurately describes the disease's progress and the adjustments necessary to cope with it. The result is a tender story of "the marriage of true minds."
