KIRKUS REVIEW

Report repeated from Page 329 of the June 1st bulletin- as follows: ""Down another English garden (or bridal) path, as the newspaper announcement of the engagement of young Paul Saxon to a girl he'd never heard of- the daughter of a fortune- teller- brings on all kinds of romantic repercussions. Paul is never able to identify his intended- but instead meets Antonia, who is socially unsuitable but far more appealing than his uncle's candidate for his hand; his uncle Oswald fulminates, speculates and investigates to no purpose; his mother, widowed and charmingly distrait, attracts a suitor in the Scotland Yard man assigned to clarify the case; his sister Philipps experiments with a young scientist, and wins his affections; etc. etc. a pleasant confusion of intrigue and infatuation, with a sunny sparkle to most of it.
