KIRKUS REVIEW

If this is designed for juvenile consumption, it should be clearly understood that- outside the Catholic market, the book should be given only to thoughtful students; interested in Cardinal Newman as a dramatic and often tragic figure in Church history, and in the careful weighing of pros and cons which brought him, first to his decision to go into the Church of England, then through his period of revolt to his acceptance of the Church of Rome. The first half of the book, dealing with his youth, is almost another Tom Brown's School Days. Brilliantly handled.
