HARRY MARTIN'S WIFE by Elizabeth Corbett


Email this review


Over the hill and into the valley of death with Harry and Alice Martin, who figured in the earlier The Heart of the Village (they run a bookshop) and The Crossroads. Once again we visit with their friends and callers at the bookshop, with Bess who writes greeting card Verses as Well as poetry, with Emil, who has a heart attack, but mostly with Alice as Harry fails, after two operations, and dies of cancer which should put a geriatricidal end to this continuity... Alice always reads the books she sells in their bookshop since you can't ""tell too much either from reviews or from publishers' blurbs."" She's right--disregard the former and discount the latter.
