MOTHER OF FIVE by Henri Leslie


Email this review


Probably the market for this will be limited by the lack of moral tone and the unconventionality of the theme, but it is a gay tale, thoroughly entertaining and conscienceless, and an original twist to the theme perverted in Seed on the Wind (Rex Stout). Here is a story of Leah Pett and her five attractive sons who play with her in an act called Five Petts -- and each one of whom had a different father. They get along in seemingly perfect harmony until the boys strike out for themselves, and Leah goes to America on tour. She marries, but life has lost its savor, and her good and somewhat dull husband cannot face the fact of her past, when it comes to light. So she returns to the stage and her grand boys. Market -- those who wont mind its unconventionality and who enjoy stories of backstage gossip and atmosphere.
