KIRKUS REVIEW

A family story -- set in modern England -- with the battle around the right of the family to keep its unity, in spite of disaffection, of lack of sympathy between parents. The grandmother and the children stand on one side; the mother on the other, pleading the right to divorce and remarriage. Elizabeth Goudge knows children and hers is a picture untainted by the dictates of fashion. The fey quality -- the family life -- her special gift of handling it, will appeal to sensitive older boys and girls.
