KIRKUS REVIEW

Greenbanks had a substantial success in England and a critical success here. This, Mrs. Whipple's second novel of family life should help widen her market considerably. Try the E. H. Young enthusiasts. Try those who like the earlier Priestley books. The Good Companions and Angel Pavement. They are all candidates for The Great Mr. Knight. Not particularly original in theme -- the meteoric rise and fall of the family fortunes the disintegration of the members of the family under the onus of money. But assuredly presented, with leisurely filling in of the English background, well done characters, sympathy, tenderness, and no falub notes. For the audience that prefers form to plot.
