FIVE WINDOWS by D. E. Stevenson


Email this review


The story of David Kirke in which thin times lead to a fulfillment offers a placid play of growing up, romance and London and Scotland. For David leaves the Manse for Edinburgh and school where he makes friends with a more worldly uncle and a most unworldly aunt. Next comes London, a rooming house and his withdrawal from the assorted boarders, and then a chance at a flat of his own, where his writing progresses and promises so that when the legacy of Green Beach Cottage comes to him, he finds his heart's ease in Janet, whom he saves from her devouring twin and her unsympathetic family, and a future of some assurance. Gentleness and gentility are still the catalysts for every problem in this writer's lexicon.
