GOLD AT HUNTER'S POINT

Karen, fifteen-year-old girl, who has not seen her father for ten years, is faced with the problem of learning to love the man who is to her, at once, a stranger and a parent. This reconciliation is made somewhat easier by the fact that Karen's father, having been expelled from Hunter's Point on a trumped up arson charge, sets out to acquit himself, and in the course of this story, nobly exonerates himself. At the end, all the good people are happy, having, thanks to a snow storm and the machinations of the bad people, been given a chance to display really phenomenal courage. Under those circumstances, a happy ending is inevitable although the initial problem -- normal adjustment to an abnormal situation --is somehow lost in the cloud of glory.
