KIRKUS REVIEW

A slight story of mood rather than incident, in which the sound of bells symbolically hinds past and present together. The story harks back to two disillusioned youngsters, denying everything but their love for each other, and discussing the memories aroused by bells; then forward, some years later, when -- at Christmas time -- both are drawn irresistibly together by the sound of an ancient lighthouse bell in a snow storm, symbol of the permanence of the Christmas spirit. New England tale.
