KIRKUS REVIEW

A slow-paced novel of the English countryside, but a book that seeps into the consciousness pleasantly, and that gives one the very sound and scent and feel of the soil, even before the hero, in whose mind was always the urge to get back to the farm, emerges from the long upward pull through the marts of trade. There is the same sort of appeal that Sheila Kaye-Smith's earlier books had -- the story is a ""success story"" with a new twist; but the interest is primarily in the details of the building of a career against odds, of the gradual breaking down of certain class distinctions, of the molding of the man himself. A book for a conservative market -- but one that those customers will enjoy immensely.
