Marketed as fiction for young adults. A young woman living on an island where her grandfather runs a lighthouse has just graduated from high school, but doesn't want to go to the city to become a teacher, nor does she particularly want to help run the lighthouse. Instead, she wants to become an artist, but there may not be any hope for that, until she meets an older, attractive, accomplished man, whereupon "she can't help wondering whether he holds the answer to her problem." This copy inscribed by McNeil, on title page. Inscription reads, "--For Dorothy/& Dick/love/Florence./1989." So if you're a Dorothy or a Dick, this is the copy for you. Of course, if you're a Dorothy you'll have to hook up with a Dick, and if you're a Dick you'll have to find yourself a Dorothy, but hey, how tough can that be? 127 pages, cover illustration by Florence Straub. Moderate general wear.
