THE TANGLED SKEIN

This is so nearly very good that we found its too easy denouement disappointing. The first half- with the story of Solveig, who came back from Scotland to find her beloved Norwegian homeland turned against her as a member of a family of collaborationists, and of how she set about proving their loyalty -- is holding reading. But as the tide turns in her favor, things seem to come too easily- and the plot in its conclusions seems contrived, the characterizations flimsy. However, the setting, the period (after the war) have a fresh slant.
