TOGETHER AND APART

Catharine Whitcomb in The Grown Ups chose much the same theme Margaret Kennedy has chosen here -- the story of the breaking up of a marriage and the effect on the children. But Margaret Kennedy has succeeded in what she has tried to do. She has made the ill-considered conflict between the parents convincing; she has shown the gradual effect on the young daughter, the bombshell shock to the son; she has followed through with the impact of character against character. I found it her best book since The Constant Nymph. A family story of modern life with characters that ring true, and situations that are convincing.
