THE HEADLAND by Carol Brink


Email this review


A far cry from the Mid-West setting one associates with Carol Brink in her memorable juveniles, this is a story of five youngsters grown to maturity in a Channel port village in France. To each- John Marsh and his sister Hilda who have been in the United States, to Raoul and Catalina from Spain, and to Vicky who is English, the Headland offers something different and forms a constant to their contrasting characters. Then as the Spanish Civil War first and the World War II see their futures evolve, it is Raoul and Hilda who come to grief, Catalina who enters a convent and John and Vicky who find happiness together. Not profound, but pleasant.
