KIRKUS REVIEW

Maine as the background for a sensitive study of adolescence, a story filled with homey repetitions, local and family anecdotes, trivia of daily life and a glowing response to Maine's natural beauties. The plot revolves around Nathan's emergence from the world of boyhood to a keener perception of his part in the scheme of things, -- first of the place in the family, in his immediate world, then to a realization of externals, with the war impinging on his awakening consciousness, and new discords, within him, to be realigned in the larger world.
