KIRKUS REVIEW

A legendary dread of the Pride family and its association with Puritan witchcraft, and the equally venerable feud between the Prides and the Bishops are laid to rest by the friendship and sleuthmanship of the orphaned thirteen-year-old Dan Pride, newly arrived at Pride's Point, and Pip and Gilly Cole, twin offspring of Ann Bishop. All the paraphernalia of witchcraft is drawn up from the surrounding marsh, but the effect is too doggedly atmospheric, the plotting too plodding to create suspense. Limp characterization further dis-spells.
