LOVE FROM SANDY by Elwynne Berger


Email this review


The not always ""adhesive"" thoughts of Sandy Sanderson, set to paper in her letters home from England, reflect the effervescent and enterprising character of their contributor and have a young, bright burble. And while the sites and statuary do not impress her, and she finds the food- and the climate- austere, she responds to the extra-curricular phases of her education with enthusiasm. There's the crossing on the Liberte with 22 Rhodes scholars- all of whom could be hers- but from whom she selects Steve who is very ""deep""; there's Dave, in Paris, who offers a more dependable type of devotion; there's the romance she instills between loveless Miss Day and a professor, which does not founder but flourishes behind her back. Her resourceful activities come to a close when she is sent down, after organizing a student demonstration, to be salvaged from disgrace by the intervention of the now kindly Miss Day... Sandy- as she bats her lashes- and bridles- at the British, is an engaging eighteen, and her letters have an impromptu, impudent charm.
