MISS WARREN'S SON by Elizabeth Jordan


Email this review


Conservative problem tale for plain palates... Once ""disappointed"", and now manshy Alicia Warren, in search of a child to adopt, is providentially, and temporarily, given the care of four-year old Tony whose widowed mother cannot support him. Participating in this project is Barry Conway who helps Alicia take in the abandoned Tony, who rescues him from a designing aunt, and who sets Tony's mother on her feet again in a good position. Alicia, distant and impersonal, gives Barry no breaks --concentrates her emotions on Tony even though she realizes she will lose him within a year, but when she does, turns to Marry and prospects of children of her own.
