CANDLE IN THE SUN

Recalls McFee's No Castle In Spain to this extent, that it tells the story of an interracial marriage, an American girl, modern, gay and free, and a Spaniard, presumably a Forte Rican, brought up in a huge and uncontrolled family in which the women are bound by convention and show their emotions by hysteria. In the midst of problems of adjustment, the girl faces the terror that there is Negro blood in the family into which she has married, and has her fears confirmed when her son is born. It is a tragic tale, well told, and with implications of emotional struggle that lie below the surface. Good picture of an island in threes of political upheaval.
