Informal autobiography, written by a student at Wellesley, and telling the story of an Albanian girl brought up in the strict traditions of her people. Day by day happenings, an interesting and colorful account of her people, their customs, rites, superstitions and legends. The wedding of her sister -- the war with Italy -- the death of her parents which released her from the custom of child marriage and gave her the chance to break away from the rigorous laws that bound her and come to America. No special distinction in the telling -- but it is quaint, simple, personal and unusual in content -- a shrewd view of the conflict between old and new. Chance for a plus sale with older girls.
