KIRKUS REVIEW

In complete contrast to her earlier caustic novels about women, this provides a sober, solid picture of German immigrants, holding fast to their loyalties to all things German, until the present war out them loose. Not an easy thing to do, but she achieves a competent portrait of Americanization, of feminine adaptation through family life, through marriage, to a new country. It is a story of three generations, the emphasis on the first and third, and on the problem of too close integration with things German, within and without the family circle. Good feminine appeal, I should think.
