Scarce first edition of the second novel by Merriam Modell (1908-1994), who was known for addressing domestic conflicts in her fiction. Here, in My Sister, My Bride, she tackles the delicate problem of frigidity in women. In this story, Cassie is an intelligent woman, devoted to her husband, happy in her home, proud of her little boy. She tries earnestly to save her marriage; and her struggle is the basis of a tense and thought-provoking love story.

Modell was nominated for an Edgar Award in 1950 and two of her books were made into films in the 1960s, one starring Bette Davis and the other Laurence Olivier.
