KIRKUS REVIEW

The first part is highly recommended -- that of the boy- meets-girl story of a young fish peddler and an untutored, frightened girl and their marriage which found deepening love and faith, in the inland district ""west of the hill"" of Maine, back in the '80's. Molly's determination that somehow the cleavages between people of different backgrounds, nationalities and religions must be cemented in the common cause of humanity takes on a rather cloying sense of sweetness and light, which spoils what might have been a really strong religious spirit. But the triumphant conclusion should find the same audience that Grace Livingston Hill has had through the years.
