THE LARK LEGACY by Alice Hegan Rice
Kirkus Star


Email this review


There's a distinctive Alice Hogan Rice flavor to this story, which will make it dependable for her established market. The film of Mrs. Wiggs should have widened that market considerably. This is the story of an adventure in good deeds, the story of the summer Isobel Reed planned, on receipt of a legacy, and which turned out just as she had hoped. She gives deaf Cousin Ada something to talk about; an invalid nephew regains his health; a husband and wife are reunited; and a whole family made happy. And her husband, who had not been lot in on the secret, has such a good time with the way it works out, that he relents on the one subject on which he had been adamant, and allows her a free rein in redecorating their home. The setting is Maine. And there's a fairy tale come true quality to it that makes it very engaging. Good characterization and good fun.
