KIRKUS REVIEW

True Gothicism. Complete with ragged innocent heir, a little boy entombed in the blackness of his home--nicknamed ""Starvelings"" by frightened villagers, a lovely governess who comes to take care of him having lost her true love, and the evil that his father and his father's manservant represented. Miss Berckman can impart an air of doom to the sound of a broom. She's almost too clever but it's for the ladies who will thrill along.
