THE FLEDGLING

There will always be an England and a new Elizabeth Cadell (this seems, as nearly as we can remember, one of her best) and an old readership, and the youngster of the title is Vitorina -- Tory for short -- who is sent from Portugal to her father (widowed) in England escorted by a casual acquaintance, Darlan. He disappears during the train ride, leaving behind him an obviously valuable and more obviously stolen statuette which Tory dumps in a washroom -- only to be followed by other interrogators. On the side, there's a romance, her father's, and at the end it's happily resolved. For those who, like Tory, make the transition from pudim dan to caramel custard without noticing the difference which there isn't.
