EVENING IN SPRING by August Derleth


Email this review


Again Sa Prairie, as setting for a novel of adolescent emotions, as young Steve's Roman Catholic family frowns on his love for Marjorie who is not of the faith. Steve, knowing what he wants, makes his plans, organizes his high school pals into a miniature Gestapo and blackmails the adults by threatening to ""Tell All"". If Marjorie had been of the same calibre as Steve, all would have been well -- but.... So much for the story, footnoted, addenda ed. These Sac Prairie stories are a sort of running Spo River gallery. This has broader human interest appeal than most of them.
