KIRKUS REVIEW

Nothing spectacular, but a pleasant, leisurely simple family story, with a certain amount of stress on the Vermont setting. Brace's first two books, The Islands and The Wayward Pilgrims, won a good press and a loyal following -- a market akin to the Dorothy Canfield one, somewhat fined down. Brace has an awareness of people and environment, he is a thoughtful, sensitive writer, with an adroitly merged sense of poetry and realism. The book encompasses one year in the life of a family, particularly of the three children, the eldest, who lives by his hands, the younger son who lives through his mind, and the daughter, who lives by her emotions.
