KIRKUS REVIEW

A year's diary of a Long Island wife and mother of two children whose totally different personalities cause her no little worry. Restricted by the depression, the family finds pleasure in many small ways they never knew existed, and cooking, gardening, neighbors and community problems assume important parts in its life. Although this lacks the sparkle of The Diary of a Provincial Lady there is here the courage and faith and intelligence and good humor that some have won through Depression years. Should appeal to commuters' wives, ""provincial ladies"", women of the middle and upper middle classes, women's club members, and a wide range of nice average people.
