Canadian publication reissuing the 1947 hardcover edition published by Phoenix Press. A woman with a sordid past (don't they all?) gives up "making sin pay in a big way" to become "a devoted and loving wife," but when a former boyfriend "eager to renew his option on her charms" shows up and infoms her husband about her past, said husband takes a self-righteous hike, whereupon said woman, "having tested sacred love and found it wanting," returns to "pursuing its profane counterpart." 147 pages. Rubbing, reading crease to left front cover, impressions, wear to corners/spine ends, 1" separation at bottom right spine edge, minor dampstaining along fore-edge, a couple of turned corners, slight mustiness, smudging. Scarce in any condition.
