KIRKUS REVIEW

Another multiple in this author's series of ""Romance of the Borders"" goes its own familiar gait in accomplishing the expected result of boy destined for girl -- but... Will Hastie, finished with his professional soldiering, comes home to live with his father, to face the war death of Rae Murray, to resume his friendship with Rae's family -- and his sister Patience. Burdened by Patty's secret of Rae's last letter and her engagement to her cousin Hugo, Will -- even after his twelve years' absence -- takes leave of his home place, tours France to learn about Rae's death, -- and discovers that Rae has left a French wife, Julie, and a son, Tom. Will's efforts to persuade them to visit Rae's family work out and he, bewitched by Julie, is insensitive to Patty's broken engagement until Julie ""arranges"" things to everyone's best advantage -- leaving Tom with his English family, returning to France to make a worthwhile marriage, and snapping will into realizing that it is Patty he has loved all along. Tranquilizing tale-telling from the Scottish Borders.
