THESE ELDER REBELS by Helen Abbott Beals

Email this review


Don't slip up on this -- even if you have not ordered. It's the sort of book that is so hard to find -- a likeable, humorous, spontaneous sort of family story, of normal problems and timely interest. Your elderly ladies will adore it; and others, who do not spurn the conservative type of book, of all ages, will find it entertaining. Same sort of market as The Young Mrs. Meigs... Clem's business is slipping. Sally is getting tired of playing up to her children's demands, now that they are grown and should be on their own. They decide they have carried the young people long enough, and -- without warning -- find a house on the Cape which exactly suits their needs, minus the family. They help untangle the young people's problems -- and move out from under family responsibilities. A right about turn on the Years Are So Long theme. Don't miss it.
