Adequate, competent, but unimportant. Rather ""old hat"" as to plot (daughter brings home as lover an old flame from her mother's innocent past, and the man finds it is the mother he loves). But E.M. Delafield spins her tale easily and her dialogue is good, her characters well drawn, though not too deep. Behind her story is the intimation of the cracking veneer of old England, with a fresh surface of new England, war-born, and quite unsure. Upper grade rentals.
