"Kathleen's" emotions and finances become quite strained as she lives beyond her means. Does the pressure become too stressful?

This was left over after a rainy Gaithersburg Book Festival. When I saw the title, I had to pull it for Melydia. Her boyfriend sometimes calls her Katie. Sophia calls her Rose. Her real name is Katherine Rose. This book literally has her name on it. At least it is neither cold nor sassy.
ETA -- I just noticed the surname of the author -- makes it even better.

I know you are trying to get rid of books and not acquire more, but it literally had your name on it. What was I supposed to do?

This is amazing. All three of my names (though I spell it Katy) on a single book cover. What are the odds? (Probably pretty good, actually - my name isn't all that uncommon.) Anyway, while I got a good chuckle out of it, I am unlikely to read a random novel from 1964, so I shall pass it along. First, though, I must share the dedication:

TO MY NIECE, Loretto
