Lovely young nurse Louisa Varner had a problem--her boyfriend, Allan Prescott, was returning home after a two year overseas army assignment. Although Louisa was anxious to see him, she was more than a little nervous to discover his reaction to her new found independence. In the years Allan had been away, Louisa had matured greatly, and had become dedicated to her profession--a profession she was afraid Allan would want her to give up once they were married. And how would he react to the news that she had her own apartment? Surely he would think it was a waste of money, when Louisa's parents had a large house and were very sympathetic to the needs and desires of their only child.
Louisa was afraid that she and Allan had grown apart during their separation, but she did not take into account the fact that Allan too might have changed. Perhaps he had outgrown his need for her.
