KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a disappointing book. Cornelia Spencer, in writing Pearl Buck's biography, seems to feel that she must keep it all on a rather superficial plane, minimizing any emotional values, any controversial material, anything below the surface of the story of a girl, brought up in China, of missionary parents, educated partly in China and in this country, experiencing at first hand the effects of clash of races, and step by step becoming one of todays outstanding writers. The material is all there. The style is forced, and just a trifle condescending.
