"Expertly told and rich in entertainment, here is a story of people attempting to act by and maintain standards of other years, puyzzled and almost overthrown by what is happening around them, evens which they know and see but which they cannot quickly sense as a part of their own pattern. When Bruce and Jane Randolph take theirnineteen-year-old son Allan to France, they are confronted with the great moments of their own past lives. As they travel from the Riviera to Paris facing another war with dreadful calm, those moments become alive. [...] Frustrated by their own insensitivity to the new and terrible forces in the world, it is through Allan, who is unhampered by outworn beliefs, that they begain [sic] to see there may be salvage and hope." - from the dust jacket.
