Alicia had no reason for marriage, she was having a great time being single, but when her step-father suggested she might turn into an "old-maid," he made her an offer she found hard to resist. He would pay her ticket around the world, all expenses paid, providing she returns with a husband. She immediately accepted his challenge and embarked upon a husband-hunting adventure, and in the process discovered her own weaknesses. The story unfolds of how she was constantly falling in love with the wrong men: Attilio, the singing psychiatrist whose love produced disastrous emotional consequences, pushing her into the arms of Luis, her Latin lover from Argentina; Arno, the Italian count, who hid behind her beauty; Ted, the American industrialist, who lied to her in Tokyo. When she set her sites on Jack, a California pilot, he was in no mood for marriage, ever accompanied by a bevy of suntanned beauties. Running out of time, she puts her devious plan into action. Husband Hunting, a woman's search for a husband is indeed cosmopolitan and delightful reading. Each chapter describes the nation Alicia is hunting in at the time: the land of the tango, Argentina; romantic Italy, haughty Germany, and frigid yet passionate Russia. Husband Hunting, the story of one woman's search for marriage, is a blueprint for husband hunting.
