KIRKUS REVIEW

A successor to Pray Love, Remember, which introduced the Farrells- an Irish Catholic family living in upstate New York-this concentrates its focus on Viola Farrell, the eldest of four, follows her through childhood on. Viola, sensitive, restless, fanciful, reflects many of the excitements and let-downs of younger years, the worry over her grades- and the disfavor of her father against whom her mother is always a protective insulation. There are first beaux, graduation, the bid to a sorority, and on to Pratt Institute and the decision to teach. Securing a position in a Catholic college, Viola is responsive to the security, the serenity there, slowly is drawn toward the calling to be a nun... A natural quality here, a warmth and sincerity gives this a general reader interest (particularly for women) beyond the obvious Catholic market.
