ALMOST LIKE SISTERS

Jealousy of her flirtatious widowed mother causes a seventeen year old Southern belle to ""flee"" to Boston where she can move outside of Mrs. Logan's slim shadow. Victoria slowly gains self-confidence through a part-time job and a handsome Harvard graduate student. Mother descends on the scene suddenly with a resounding permanence, and Vicky's world is threatened again. Romance at its most realistic and most embarrassing moments, dialogue and narration of a high calibre- make this an outstanding work in a genre which is flooded with mediocrity. By the versatile author of Accent on April (1960, p. 564, J-222).
