TRUTH TO TELL

Good Rosman, though we didn't like it quite as well as Mother of the Bride. Possibly because it follows too much the fairy tale pattern of the wicked grandmother, the two lost children, and the eventual reunion, and happy ending. None the less, Miss Rosman has the faculty of creating her atmosphere and characters convincingly through excellent dialogue and a good dramatic and descriptive sense. She is an adept in the field of family tales, she writes of pleasant peoples in pleasant places, and she is conservative without being sugary. This is the story of a brother and sister separated in babyhood, and kept apart by the grandmother who wants the girl to be ignorant of the existence of her brother and plans to condemn her to a lonely barren life in punishment for her parents' unfortunate marriage. But it all turns out well, and it is excellent hammock reading. First rate rentals and public library circulation.
