KIRKUS REVIEW

Comfortable, leisurely reading in a story of the Hunters and the Lockwoods. Mrs. Hunter, newly widowed, had lost her inheritance, through the sharp dealings of Mr. Lockwood, and for years she and her three children are exposed to the unwelcome benevolence of the Lockwoods. It is only Thea of the three who defies them, goes to France to teach for a year and is fired for an innocent involvement. Back in England, Thea tells off Mrs. Lockwood, and with the help of devoted Oliver, the family finances improve, and eventually Mr. Lockwood's deception is uncovered and Thea revenged.
