KIRKUS REVIEW

With the formation of the FMOH-- secret society For Marrying Off Hannah -- by Hannah's two younger brothers and their companions, the fun and confusion begin, and mount as the story moves along. The Norwegian village as a whole becomes concerned about the girl who has no intended, who wears thick glasses and wants only to read and teach school. One comical situation follows another, all centered round Hannah and the FMOH. Hannebo Holm expertly weaves in the loose ends of the plot, and develops characters with a few sharp lines. The author of Beauty Queen (1962, p. 59. J-25) again-- and even more successfully-- is to be commended for drawing cloud clingers back to solid earth in a story which has enough romance and comedy to satisfy the sighers.
