FAMILY PORTRAIT by Elizabeth Corbett


Email this review


A well-filled genealogy traces the life lines of the Carson girls, and their brother Chuck, through the years of the 20's, 30's, and 40's, and down to the next generation. Gentle Christine marries Prentice, and becomes the mother of Jane and Tommy; graceful Liz marries Mark; Chuck is less lucky in his choice of Lillian and only many years later secures his freedom for Anne; and Winifred, after an offhand romance with Jerry, moves to New York to become a successful cosmetician. There are other men to fill her evenings- but not her life, and it is only after her favorite niece and nephew have married and perpetuated, that she recognizes more than friendship in her feelings for the faithful Charles... For the womenfolks a romantic reciprocity and comfortable domesticity they can share. Rentals.
