KIRKUS REVIEW

Home front homilies into familiar family fare for the story of the Carringtons at war, when Jim, the father, enlists, and Alix, the wife, copes with victory garden, red points, furnaces and two offspring Pen falls in love with a marine; Tommy gets over an adolescent aversion to skirts and helps the family finances by selling his puppies. Finally, on the eve of Pen's marriage, comes news that Jim is missing -- and Alix keeps it to herself -- and is justified when Jim turns up at the psychological moment. Rental Recipe.
